Can someone explain this modifier to me? I am so stuck and really need some help with it. I did a question out of my textbook, "arthroplasty of two metacarpophalangeal joints". The answer I put was 26530, 26530-51, but my teacher says it's 26530, 26530-59. When she tried to explain to me why it's -59, I am still confused! Please help! Thank you!!!
