ICD-10-PCS: Orthopedic Procedure Coding

ICD-10-PCS: Orthopedic Procedure Coding provides comprehensive instruction on coding the top orthopedic procedures performed in U.S. hospitals, both simple and complex. With a special emphasis on difficult-to-code spinal procedures, the list includes:

  • Bone Biopsies
  • Osteotomy
  • Fractures of Jaw, Orbits and Other Bones
  • Periprosthetic FracturesNon-union Fractures
  • Special Fixation Devices
  • Limb Lengthening
  • Bone Growth Stimulator Insertion
  • Identifying Joint Structures and their Repairs
  • Joint Release and Repositioning
  • Joint Replacement/Arthroplasty (Hip, Knee, Shoulder, Ankle, Wrist and Elbow)
    • Including Coding of a Unicondylar Knee Replacement
  • Joint Replacement Revisions
    • Revision of Hemiarthroplasty of Hip
    • Revision of Hemiarthroplasty of Knee
  • Explantation of Prostheses
  • Joint Resurfacing
  • Combination Bone and Joint Replacement for Tumor
  • Fusion of Ankle, Wrist and Tibio-Talo-Calcaneal Joints

The course focuses on bones and joints only (no muscles, ligaments or tendons) to ensure the coder’s comprehension of this difficult to code body system. The course covers hospital procedures coded using ICD-10-PCS; for training on use of CPT coding see the Libman Education CPT Coding course.

Combine this course with the Soft Tissue Reconstruction course to learn skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, tendon and ligament procedures and understand the entire musculoskeletal system in ICD-10-PCS.
