BKA

Patient previously has a BKA, currently out of global, but developed a postoperative wound infection below the knee stump. Provider took to surgery and did a debridement and shortened the bone again by 1 inch. Would the correct CPT be 27886 since he still had to shorten another inch.

Thanks for your question.

CPT 27886 is correct for this scenario
