2021 ICD-10-CM Code S83.14

Lateral subluxation and dislocation of proximal end of tibia

Version 2021
Non-Billable Code

Not Valid for Submission

S83.14 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of lateral subluxation and dislocation of proximal end of tibia. The code is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

Code Classification

Specific Coding for Lateral subluxation and dislocation of proximal end of tibia

Header codes like S83.14 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for lateral subluxation and dislocation of proximal end of tibia:

  • S83.141 - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, right knee
  • S83.141A - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, initial encounter
  • S83.141D - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.141S - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, sequela
  • S83.142 - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, left knee
  • S83.142A - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, initial encounter
  • S83.142D - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.142S - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, sequela
  • S83.143 - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee
  • S83.143A - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, initial encounter
  • S83.143D - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.143S - Lateral subluxation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, sequela
  • S83.144 - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, right knee
  • S83.144A - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, initial encounter
  • S83.144D - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.144S - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, right knee, sequela
  • S83.145 - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, left knee
  • S83.145A - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, initial encounter
  • S83.145D - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.145S - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, left knee, sequela
  • S83.146 - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee
  • S83.146A - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, initial encounter
  • S83.146D - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, subsequent encounter
  • S83.146S - Lateral dislocation of proximal end of tibia, unspecified knee, sequela

Information for Patients


Dislocations

Dislocations are joint injuries that force the ends of your bones out of position. The cause is often a fall or a blow, sometimes from playing a contact sport. You can dislocate your ankles, knees, shoulders, hips, elbows and jaw. You can also dislocate your finger and toe joints. Dislocated joints often are swollen, very painful and visibly out of place. You may not be able to move it.

A dislocated joint is an emergency. If you have one, seek medical attention. Treatment depends on which joint you dislocate and the severity of the injury. It might include manipulations to reposition your bones, medicine, a splint or sling, and rehabilitation. When properly repositioned, a joint will usually function and move normally again in a few weeks. Once you dislocate a shoulder or kneecap, you are more likely to dislocate it again. Wearing protective gear during sports may help prevent dislocations.

Knee Injuries and Disorders

Your knee joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the knee joint move. When any of these structures is hurt or diseased, you have knee problems. Knee problems can cause pain and difficulty walking.

Knee problems are very common, and they occur in people of all ages. Knee problems can interfere with many things, from participation in sports to simply getting up from a chair and walking. This can have a big impact on your life.

The most common disease affecting the knee is osteoarthritis. The cartilage in the knee gradually wears away, causing pain and swelling.

Injuries to ligaments and tendons also cause knee problems. A common injury is to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). You usually injure your ACL by a sudden twisting motion. ACL and other knee injuries are common sports injuries.

Treatment of knee problems depends on the cause. In some cases your doctor may recommend knee replacement.
