    I have just inherited coding for an Ortho and am confused on what I can bill. The patient had surgery - Percutaneious pinning of fracture to left long finger. Two days later same patient was seen in office and the doctor changed the dressing and applied a splint. Can we bill 29125 for the splint or would this be considered part of the global package. Thanks for the help.
