Each surgical specialty has its own tips and rules for coding procedures performed. This audio conference will introduce the ins and outs of orthopedic surgery coding to those of you who may just have begun working with the specialty or clear up some questions for folks that have been doing it for awhile.

Lynn will also review some of the other body systems involved in orthopedics, and will give insights on current terminology for Orthopedics, ICD-9 coding, as well as CPT coding for conditions and injuries.
