tricompartment osteoarthritis ICD

  1. Default tricompartment osteoarthritis ICD
    Medical Coding Books
    What is the ICD for tricompartment osteoarthritis? If no other information is being given put the joint(knee) would it just be 715.3*? 715.0*? 716.9*?

  2. #2
    Default
    I would go with 715.36. 715.0* is generalized for multiple joints. 716.9* isn't ostearthritis

  3. Default
    We use 715.96 in our clinic.

  4. Smile
    715.36 we have used for years regardless of how many compartments of the knee.
