Thread: Core decompression

  1. #1

    Default Core decompression

    Core decompression of a femur...unlisted procedure???? Would it be an unlisted code for the hip or more for the knee?

  2. #2


    That would depend on the description of the procedure; was it for the hip or knee? Can you post a portion of the note?

  3. #3


    I don't have the op report back yet. My doctor came to me and said he did a distal femur core decompression along with a knee scope..............
