This edition of the JPOSNA Coding Corner allows us to share in a conversation between our coding expert, Sarah Wiskerchen (SW) from KarenZupko Associates, Inc. (KZA), and one of our Society’s leaders in limb lengthening and reconstruction, Christopher A. Iobst, MD (CAI). The questions are absolutely on point in order to help us navigate the world of osteotomies and external fixators while the answers provide clarity and direction for proper billing and documentation of the management of these complicated patients.  Enjoy the dialogue and ensure you understand the proper difference between an osteotomy and an osteoplasty by conversation’s end!
