Re: knee brace codes

Paula Pivko

I’m sorry, I was not very clear. I wanted L-codes…I apologize again. I’m pretty sure that there aren’t any but I was hoping. Sincerely Paula

> Hely and Weber model 3771H. The brace has sewn in patella buttresses (medial and lateral) and you can get a lot of other things. Pull loops, 1/4″ neoprene (4771H), etc. Just call them and talk to them. Also, give them circ. at +6″, +3″, knee center, -3″, -6″. For larger patients, go up and down sufficiently far (maybe 8″ or so and use the 4771H.). The thigh should be pulled slightly snug as they seem to make it “true” which leaves the thigh a little on the plus side. Try once and you’ll never even think of trying any other way. I tell my patients they’ll be responsible for the the custom fee which hovers under fifty bucks. They quickly embrace this option when I let them know the “wraparounds” suck when new and only get worse from there. Call me if I can be of any further help for your first one!
