Drilling, Lateral Femoral Condyle

L Posted Mon 29th of February, 2016 00:12:15 AM

How would I code the following:
DIAGNOSIS: AVN, lateral femoral condyle, with normal appearing articular surface.

PROCEDURE: Left knee diagnostic scope and retrograde drilling of lateral femoral condyle.

I was thinking 29874 but don't think that is inclusive of the drilling.

Hi,

DIAGNOSIS: AVN, lateral femoral condyle M87.059
