Traumatic fracture of the body mandible

A patient was seen in the ED one week ago due to suffering a traumatic fracture of the body mandible, on the left side.  He is being seen today by a maxillofacial surgeon for a pre-op visit. NOTE: Assign only the injury code. This is not the patient’s first medical encounter for this injury. Guidelines direct us to code the place of occurrence and activity codes only on the initial visit.
