Need a code please - fracture care procedures

    Default Need a code please - fracture care procedures
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone tell me if debridement is always included in most fracture care procedures? I have a physician that wants to always code a separate CPT for debridement. Is there any references that lists specifically if debridement is included or not included in the procedures?

  2. Default Debridement
    Actually, the codes for debridement do apply for any open fracture reduction, selected according to what extent is being debrided (sq vs fascia vs muscle). Codes are CPT 11010 - 11012
