    Arrow Girdlestone resection question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had previous hip replacement. Doctor is removing the implants and doing Girdlestone resection. Do I use CPT 27122? Would I also need to use
    CPT code 27091 for removal of the implants? I am not sure if that is included
    with the primary procedure. Please help. Thank you

    I believe it would be included in the Girdlestone
