    Question Revision of Knee Replacement

    AAPC: Back to School
    Requesting advice regarding which CPT code is appropriate for a revision/replacement of a patellar component with revision of the tibial polyethylene. Would 27310 or 27486 be the better code to use?

    Look at 27438 with a 22 modifier for the revision and 27486 with a 52 modifier for the liner?
    jdemar, CPC, CMA
