Report Tendon Repair of Glutei as Unlisted

Question: Our surgeon did a tendon repair of the gluteus minimus and gluteus medius? What are the appropriate CPT® codes we can use to report this?Alabama SubscriberAnswer: The only no tendon repair codes for procedures done at the hip joint are those for the hamstrings or quadriceps. There are no tendon repair codes for the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. You may use the unlisted code 27299 (Unlisted procedure, pelvis or hip joint) to report the repair of these tendons.
