If both medial and lateral epicondylitis is treated for the same side, can 24359 be reported twice?

It all depends on the procedure performed to treat epicondylitis. There are multiple CPT codes used for epicondylitis. Please choose the appropriate CPT code as per below:
- 24357 - Percutaneous tenotomy
- 24358 - Open tenotomy
- 24359 - Open tenotomy with tendon repair or reattachment
Use 50 modifier with the appropriate CPT code for procedure performed bilaterally.
