femoral acetabular joint injection

Bill Posted Tue 05th of August, 2014 08:57:02 AM

Can you please tell me if procedure code "64447" would be appropriate for injection of femoral acetabular joint?

Thank you

If you are injecting the joint the code 20610(Arthrocentesis, aspiration and/or injection; major joint or bursa (eg, shoulder, hip, knee joint, subacromial bursa) is the code you would use.

64447 is used when you are injecting the femoral nerve.

Please see the following link for additional information regarding 64447.

Hope this helps.
