How to code for failed Closed reduction of fracture followed by Surg

New patient with distal radius fracture. Dr did a closed reduction but fracture had continued angulation. Patient sch for an ORIF 2 days later. Can I bill the office visit with closed reduction and when I bill the ORIF add a 58 modifier?

Yes, in this case it would be appropriate to bill for both the closed reduction and ORIF. (If the E/M was significant and separate from the closed reduction, then the E/M is also appropriate).
