Hi,

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:-

  1. Achilles tendon repair: 27650-27654
  2. Retrocalcaneal exostectomy: 28118-28119
  3. osteotomy of the 1st metatarsal head: 28306-28309
  4. 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 customerservice@supercoder.com for more information

Thanks
