Arthroscopic Glenoid Resurfacing

Pia Posted Thu 17th of December, 2015 14:18:32 PM

My Doc performed a posterior bankart and slap repair, lysis of adhesions, capsular release and extensive debridement and arthroscopic glenoid resurfacing with dermal allograft. I am asking how do I code the glenoid resurfacing and allograft?

Thanks for your query,

Cpt 23473 (Revision of total shoulder arthroplasty, including allograft when performed; humeral or glenoid component) appears to be appropriate for glenoid resurfacing and allograft.
