Our surgeon performed a repair of an Achilles tendon, excision Haglund’s deformity of the calcaneus and retrocalcaneal bursectomy. Are we able to code the bursectomy in addition to the repair and excision of Haglund’s? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Thank you for your inquiry and explanation of procedures performed. The excision of the retrocalcaneal bursectomy is not separately reportable. This work is inclusive to the excision of the Haglund’s deformity.
