Margaret M. Maley


Margaret Maley brings over 30 years of orthopaedic experience to her clients working with KarenZupko & Associates as a consultant and speaker for 20 years. With a B.S.N. from The University of Illinois and Master’s degree from Rush University, Ms. Maley began her career in Chicago as a clinical nurse specialist managing several FDA studies. Moving to Houston in 1986, she transitioned to the business side of orthopaedics. “Front-line” experience managing orthopaedic practices gives her unique insight into the challenges facing orthopaedic surgeons and their staff on a daily basis. She is acutely aware of the importance of correct coding and accurate documentation for proper reimbursement and to minimize the risk of audit. A skilled communicator, she can sort out difficult orthopaedic coding and reimbursement issues. Ms. Maley’s fast paced humorous presentations make her a favorite of surgeons, non-physician providers, administrators and staff.

Margaret is an instructor for the national coding and reimbursement workshops sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons with extensive experience working with private practices, employed physicians, academic orthopaedic departments, and state orthopaedic societies. In addition to education on CPT and ICD-10 coding for KZA private clients, Ms. Maley has been a featured speaker for the AAOS Annual Meeting, Orthopaedic Trauma Association, Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, The Western Orthopaedic Association, Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society, and American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopaedics.
