Thread: Mako Unicompartmental Knee

  1. #1

    Red face Mako Unicompartmental Knee

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doctor said to schedule patient for a MAKO Unicompartment Knee Procedure.

    Is this different from CPT 27446?

    Never have heard of a "MAKO" knee replacement?

    Hope someone out there can let me know if this is just a one-compartment knee replacement, resurfacing, or something entirely different?

    You might want to try beginning with these CPTs 27446, 20985, and S2900.
