    Does anyone have any information on codes for this. I know that with Medicare they will not cover the computer navigation but I was wondering about other carriers and if there were any specific codes I would use on the professional coding side.

    We use 20985 for the computer navigation. The arthroplasty would be the usual 27130 for hip and 27447 for knee. Have a good day!
