We’ve all been there. You open an operative report to assign codes and you have no idea what you’re reading. It can be enough to bring someone to tears. This presentation walks through operative reports for a hip arthroplasty revision, cerebral angiography, cardioverter defibrillator exchange, and a spinal fusion. The presenter separates the “need to know” from the “nice to know” documentation from a coder’s point of view and assigns ICD-10-PCS codes to these tricky coding topics.


  • Dissect four operative reports covering complex topics
  • Identify clues for code assignment
  • Assign ICD-10-PCS codes to operative reports

Target Audience

  • Facility Coders (inpatient/outpatient)
