    Exam Training Packages
    I need clarification on 27125 and 27236. It's my understand that 27125 is usually for djd or arthritis. 27236 is for fractures, regardless if its a traumatic fracture or pathological fracture. Can anyone please clarify this for me?

    Thanks,
    Kristi

    I use 27236 for ANY type of femoral neck fracture and 27125 for DJD.

    Thanks. That's what I normally do, but was doubting myself.
