what would be the best code for distal bicep tenolysis at the elbow?

Thanks for your question.
The tenolysis of distal biceps if performed through open procedure then unlisted code 24999 should be coded.
If the tenolysis is performed arthroscopically then code 29837 (Arthroscopy, elbow, surgical; debridement, limited) or 29838 (Arthroscopy, elbow, surgical; debridement, extensive).
Hope this helps.
