Hip Procedure

L Posted Sun 14th of February, 2016 23:33:53 PM

What codes should I use for the following:
DIAGNOSIS:
1.Right hip symptomatic hardware.
2.Right hip labral tear.
3.Right hip psoas tendinitis.

PROCEDURE:
1.Right hip open hardware removal of a DHS plate and screws
2.Right hip arthroscopic labral repair.
3.Right hip arthroscopic psoas tenotomy.

I'm thinking 29916 but am unsure of the other codes.
Thanks!
