    Question periprosethic femur shaft fracture repair
    Medical Coding Books
    My physician is repairing a periprosethic femur shaft fracture and doing a revision of femur arthroplasty to a longer stem to cover the fracture site. Can we will the fracture repair and the partial arthroplasty revision? If so would I will 27506 with a 52 modifier?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
