Sugery and Procedure codes
« on: April 20, 2005, 04:10:17 PM »
I am sort of new but have a surgery scheduled for May to do osteochondral grafting and an osteotomy.  I have been in a lot of pain and I am looking forward to the surgery despite the long recovery process.  I want to find out as much about this surgery as possible and I got the procedure code for it and was wondering if anyone knows where I can look up what the procedure code is.  The code is 27415.  If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

They are called CPT codes, you could try searching under that. A website might give you the option to search by code. In my experience the CPT books don't give a whole lot of detail, you might be better off searching just by the name of the procedure.
Good Luck,
