CPT code 27808 (Closed treatment of bimalleolar ankle fracture [e.g., lateral and medial malleoli, or lateral and posterior malleoli or medial and posterior malleoli]; without manipulation)


Here is a great article on ankle fracture coding:  http://medical-codes.blogspot.com/2012/06/27786-27814-be-confident-in-your-ankle.html

Just curious, do you not have a cpt book?  Are you a coder?

Sorry if that sounded rude, I didn't mean it to be.  Usually people put a bit more of an explanation as to what they are asking.  Sometimes the explanation gives us insight as to the situation and we can provide more information than simply the code.  That is exactly what this forum is for so I hope I didn't discourage you (or anyone) from asking questions!
