    Medical Coding Books
    Good Afternoon,
    Can anyone give me some code guideance on this procedure??

    Procedure: Excision of nonunion of calcaneonavicular joint.

    "The calcaneonavicular joint was identified as was the cancaneocuboid joint. There was an area of color change in the distal calcaneus with crumpled bone and cartilage at the articulation with the navicular. Osteotome and rongeurs were used to remove this diseased bone and cartilage."

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
