    Hi,

    Does anyone know which code would be appropriate to use for a triple pelvic osteotomy? I am in dire need of this code so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Many reads, no replies... I'll take a shot.... I am assuming this is a unilateral triple pelvic osteotomy...

    27146 (qty 3) or 27146-22.

    Thoughts?

    My Peds Ortho Doc has done several of these, and I am having a dog of a time getting the qty version to pay. I have resorted to using the 27146-22.

    Good Luck!!
