    Default Best Coding Books

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am beginning to code for a new Ortho Surgeon in our area and would appreciate any advice you experienced coders have on what the best reference coding books are for this specialty.

    Thank you!

    Personally, I love the Ingenis Coding Companion books. They have 2 volumes ;
    Orthopaedics- Upper: Spine and Above
    Orthopaedics- Lower: Hips and Below

    I like " A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology" by Dr. Fred R.T.Nelson, MD, FAAOS and Carolyn Taliaferro Blauvelt.

    It's great help if you are unsure of a term or procedure. I use it all the time.
