CPT code 25275 represents Repair, tendon sheath, extensor, forearm and/or wrist, with free graft (includes obtaining graft) (eg, for extensor carpi ulnaris subluxation). This is procedure of wrist and/or forearm. Modifier F6, F7 and F8 are not applicable on this code. You should bill it with RT/LT modifier. Use CPT code 26418-26428 for repair of finger tendon. Modifier F6, F7 and F8 are applicable on these codes.
