I don't have the op-report yet but I wanted a head-start. My Dr has a patient with femoral epiphysiolysis. He looked at CPT code 27176, then changed to 27178. But now he stating that he "basically placed him on the OR table and placed a single screw in situ".

He states no traction, open..just in situ single screw fixation. Interesting. He also wanted to know if admission would be necessary. Any info that anyone has before I get the op would be appreciated!!
