Peri Prosthetic Hip Fx

  1. #1
    Default Peri Prosthetic Hip Fx
    Medical Coding Books
    My doc is stating pt has peri prothetic hip fx
    patient has fx of greater and lesser trochanteric
    so he revised the femoral component and also fixated the fractures with plates, screws, and wires.

    Should I just code the 27138
    or 27244
    OR both ????

    Does the dx 996.44 take the place of 820.20 ? or would you code both?
