The doctor performed an AC joint resection and reconstruction of CC ligament with allograft and an open reduction and internal fixation of the distal clavicle using a Synthes clavicle hook plate. For the first procedure I would use CPT procedure code 23552 and for the second procedure I would like to use procedure code 23515. Are those the correct codes?

Well, thanks for your question.
Both CPTs are correct for this scenario.
CPT code 23552 (AC joint resection and reconstruction + CC ligament reconstruction with graft) and CPT 23515 (Open reduction and internal fixation of clavicle).
