what would be the best code to use for excision of bony fragment, subcutaneous tissue, anterior knee.

HELLO

As per the above documentation, CPT code 27360 seems to be the closest one and see if the documentation supports this code or else the next possible CPT would be the unlisted CPT code 27599.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

The excision is a loose body (bone fragment).

Hello

As per above information, appropriate CPT codes seems to be either 29874 (if done arthroscopically) or 27331 (if done open).

HOPE THIS HELPS!
