    Default Intermedullary Nail of Femur due to bone cancer

    Promo: Code Books
    So my Md is doing a femoral rodding in a patient who does not have a fracture. Would you still use the same code even though there is no fracture??

    would it still be 27187??

    Check the description of procedure 27495. This may be what you're looking for.
