Bimalleolar fracture with dislocation procedure coding

My doctors want to charge an open treatment of ankle dislocation code (ex. 27848) along with an open treatment of bimalleolar ankle fx treatment (ex. 27814).  Their reasoning is "not all bimalleolar fractures are dislocated".  I can't really find anything concrete from a reputable source stating we cannot do this.  Any opinions?
