Hip Procedure CPT Code

Hip surgeries are of two main types, hip replacement surgeries and hip resurfacing surgeries. The hip replacement surgery can be performed in two ways i.e. anterior and posterior hip replacement. In anterior hip replacement, an incision is made on the front side whereas in posterior hip surgery, the cut is made on the side.

    CPT Code For Total Hip Replacement

    Total hip replacement is the procedure of replacing damaged bone and cartilage with prosthetic components. Total hip arthroplasty is another name of total hip replacement. During surgery, the femoral head is placed with a metal stem (placing in femur hollow center). CPT code is 27130.

    CPT Code For Total Hip Arthroplasty

    Total hip arthroplasty is also known as total hip replacement. In this procedure, the damaged cartilage and bone is replaced with proper bone components taken from the donor. The metal stem is placed in the femoral head. The CPT code for total hip arthroplasty is 27130.

    CPT Code For Hip Hemiarthroplasty

    Hemiarthroplasty is performed to treat the hip fracture. In this procedure only the fractured or broken part of the hip joint is treated. Hemiarthroplasty, as the name indicates, the half hip joint is treated. The CPT code for half hip arthroplasty is 27236.

    CPT Code For Capsular Repair Hip

    Capsular hip repair is the process of regaining the stability of capsule. The capsulotomy and capsulectomy may bring changes in the sustainability and stability of capsule, which is mostly reversed or repaired to ameliorate the changes. The CPT code for this repair is 29914- 16.

    CPT Code Mri Hip No Contrast

    The MRI of the hip without contrast is performed under CPT code 70544. MRI is performed to check the functioning of hip joints, bones and surrounding tissues. No contrast material is incorporated before MRI scan. The radiation is passed through the body to show internal imaging on screen.

    CPT Code For Intra Articular Hip Injection

    Intra articular injections are used for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. These are pain blocker injections which are injected to stop the pain signals from the brain. The pain usually appears due to inflammation or birth injury. The CPT code is 20610 and 77002.

    CPT Code For Cortisone Injection In Hip

    Cortisone injections are pain killer injections. The inflammation or other injuries (specially joint arthritis) if causing pain in the joints, then cortisone injection is recommended. This can be performed under the fluoroscopic guidance. The CPT code is 77002 and 20610.

    CPT Code For Orif Intertrochanteric Hip Fracture

    Intertrochanteric fracture is the fracture of trochanters in the hip joint. Trochanters are the bony soft part present on the thigh bone (femur). All the surrounding muscles are attached to these trochanters. This fracture is repaired by making a small incision on the skin and by installing a hardware. The CPT code is 27245.

    CPT Code Total Hip Arthroplasty For Femoral Neck Fracture

    If there is any fracture appearing on the femoral bone, then total hip arthroplasty is recommended for the repair. The procedure involves replacement of defective or damaged bone with a proper bone (donated by someone). The CPT code for this procedure is 27130.

    CPT Code For Hip Arthroscopy With Iliopsoas Release

    Iliopsoas is a tendon responsible for hip flexion. The iliopsoas release (tenotomy) is the procedure of cutting the tendon for wider movement range. This procedure can be performed with hip arthroscopy in which a small incision is made to view inside the joint. The CPT code for this combined procedure is not listed and can be reported under 29999.
