edited May 2017 in Orthopedics
What code would you use for excision of bullet fragments? This is an old injury, several years, and the patient is now coming in for excision.

    Are the bullet fragments all in soft tissue or are they in a joint? That
    will make a difference in which CPT code you use for the excision.
