    howdy, i was informed that i need to ask you this
    question: i was planning on doing a tendon repair
    with graft placement. well there was no tear to be
    found so what i did was explore the area and
    decompress the area. How should i code it and bill
    for it? It was a posterior tibial tendon repair using the
    flexor tendon repair code with graft, as the closest
    code.

    To me, it's close to 28200. posterior tibial tendon is a flexor tendon only. Please check your documentation for more details.
