Fulkerson osteotomy

  1. Default Fulkerson osteotomy
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm looking for a code for a Fulkerson osteotomy with lateral release. The closest I can find is 27420 - reconstruction of dislocating patella (Hauser type), but the description isn't quite what the doctor did for the Fulkerson. Any suggestions?

    but you are close see 27418
