    Exclamation Frozen Cortical Strut Allograft

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning to everyone,

    I'm new to Ortho coding and I have a surgery in which my physician does a hardware removal along with repair of a stress fracture using fresh frozen cortical strut allograft. I'm not sure if there is a CPT code for this or not? I've been out searching the internet for a code and haven't had any luck with any article giving a code. Lots of reading material on it, but no code stated in any of it. Can anyone help me with this one? I'm suppose to meet with the physician on Friday Oct 8, 2010 by 8 am. If anyone has a response could you also send it to my work e-mail at Kmaher@chs-mi.com as well.

    Thanks so much for all your help,
    ~Kimberly Maher, CPC

    I think it would be included in the repair of the stress fracture, but I'm not 100% sure.
