What is CPT code for
"Open reduction using small incision and freer and percutaneous pinning of distal radius fracture"
Small incision was made over the radial aspect of the fracture site and the freer was introduced to lever it back on. This went uneventfully and allowed satisfactory reduction to be obtained. It was in a percutaneous pinned

As this is an open reduction, use 25607 if the site of the fracture is extra-articular or use 25608 if the site fracture is intra-articular with 2 fragments and 25609 with 3 or more fragments.
