    Default Bicompartmental knee arthroplasty

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am wondering if anyone has coded for a "bicompartmental knee arthroplasty"? One of my surgeons plans to use the Zimmer medial partial as well as the patellofemoral partial. I have had suggestions of using 27446 with 27438 together. Any experience with this?

    Hi.. I was wondering if you ever received a response to your questions, or if you have billed the codes? I have the same scenario and was wondering if you had any luck.
