re: Correct DX code

We can not just give you a dx code to bill for a procedure. Your dx should reflect the reason that you performed CPT® code 27385 Suture of quadriceps or hamstring muscle rupture; primary. What was the patients condition that made the provider treat this injury? Here are some dx's that match the procedure per encoder pro, but your dx should reflect the patients injury or reason for treatment.
