    Default 836.0 /836.1 or 717.1 etc

    AAPC: Back to School
    fromlooking at this would 836.0 and 836.1 be a better choice

    PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Right knee medial and lateral meniscal tears

    POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Right knee medial and lateral meniscal tears; anterior meniscal tear and posterior horn lateral meniscal tear, as well as grade 2 and 3 chondromalacia of the patella and lateral tibial plateau and grade 2 changes to the lateral femoral condyle.

    thanks trent
