    I would code each region manipulated documented in the op report separtely with the 98926 for example if these are the body parts documented:

    98926 (3-4 body regions involved)

    22505 (Manipulation of spine requiring anesthesia, any region)

    23700 (Manipulation under anesthesia, shoulder joint, including application of fixation apparatus (dislocation excluded)

    27275 (Manipulation, hip joint, requiring anesthesia)

    27570 (Manipulation of knee joint under anesthesia)
