    Red face Fracture tibial spine of knee

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is CPT 27530 or 27538 correct procedure for closed treatment of an anterior tibial spine fracture, nondisplaced, with diagnosis of 823.00. Patient is also status post ACL repair 2
    months ago, so I know I would need a modifier [79].

    Am I coding correctly?
