Hi,

Thanks for your question.

Codes from series 21244-21247 will be used for the reconstruction of mandible. If the reconstruction of mandible is performed at the condyle and autograft is used then code 21247 will be appropriate to use. Please review with the complete documentation.

ICD-10-

D16.5 Benign neoplasm of lower jaw bone

Z98.890 other specifeid post procedural status.

Thanks.
