Hello,
We are offering training on our new FDA approved our PTS Personalized Tourniquet System for Blood Flow Restriction. The product is to rehab post injury or surgery on upper and lower limbs. It allows for faster strength building, without the risk of lifting heavy weight and re-injuring. We have been only using Therapeutic Exercises 97110 for using the device on the patient. We wanted to know if there is an additional code or better code we could use instead of 97110. We have Surgeons that are currently using the product along with Physical Therapist.

Well, CPT 97110 is appropriate code to bill therapeutic exercise. Many surgeons/ physical therapists uses the different modalities to enhance strength level of the patient, coding depend on the use of modality been used. So, if only non-modality exercise regime has been used, CPT 97110 is correct code to use. Hope it helps!
