    Default Notchplasty question

    AAPC: Back to School

    Our Doctor performed a notchplasty and also a removal of pins,
    I was wondering if we can code 20680 and 29999 together for this.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated,

    generally a notchplasty is part of 29877. Did the doc convert a portal to open in order to remove the hardware or was a separate incision made?
