    Default Dbx help!!!!

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for the CPT procedure code for the Bone Growth Stimulator procedure. This is when fragments of bone are crushed and plastered together and applied to a fracture to help stimulate bone growth. I have found the ICD 9 code but can't find it anywhere in CPT.

    What's the location of the fracture? check 20930 and 20937.
