    FINAL DIAGNOSIS: Femur, Distal lateral right femur, resection Osteochondroma Clinical Information: right distal lateral femur osteochondroma for biopsy would you assign CPT 88305 based on clinical and fina diagnosis or would you assign 88309 for bone resection. Thank you

    We would prefer 88307 over 88305 and 88309. CPT code 88305 is specific to bone marrow biopsy and bone exostosis biopsy. CPT code 88307 is more specific code for pathological and microscopic examination of bone biopsy.
