    924.11 Contusion of lower limb, knee. Can't bruise the bone without also bruising the surfaces above the bone.

    It is also good, but since we know the location it would be better to use the more specific code. 924.9 is for unspecified contusion.

    Thank you guys for your help. I was looking too deep. Didn't think about the surface, trying to code it exactly as it stated.

    Any updates on this as ICD-10CM has rolled out since?
