Revision of total knee was done by exchange of poly liner, is 27486 (52) the best way to do this? Thank You
SuperCoder Posted 5 month(s) ago

Hi,


Yes, you are correct. Because only the polyethylene liner was revised, it would be appropriate to report code 27486 with modifier 52 appended to indicate the procedure was reduced.

 

Thanks.
