    Anyone know the correct icd 9 for PIP fx? Is it a dislocation code plus a fx code for the finger?

    You'll need to read your note, was it dislocated and fractured?
    PIP dislocation finger= 834.XX
    PIP-dislocation toe = 838.XX and/or fx codes of the shaft part of the bone is fractured also, finger/proximal= 816.01
    toe = 826.x more detailed info is needed.

    So the dislocation code does not include the fx of the interphalangeal joint?
