As per documentation provided by you without operative report supercoder could not help for exact Cpt code. But you can look for below codes that will help you:-
- Achilles tendon repair: 27650-27654
- Retrocalcaneal exostectomy: 28118-28119
- osteotomy of the 1st metatarsal head: 28306-28309
- detrotational arthroplasty 5 application of a BK cast throughout right lower extremity - This would mostly be included in main procedure codes.According to CPT guidelines, cast application or strapping (including removal) is only reported as a replacement procedure or when the cast application or strapping is an initial service performed without a restorative treatment or procedure.
Also, AAE does not provide coding for operative reports and chart notes.
SuperCoder offers SuperCoder on Demand (SOD) (http://www.supercoder.com/coding-answers/coding-on-demand) for coding of an operative report or chart note and you can contact (866)228-9252 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
