    I am having trouble locating codes for this and would appreciate assistance:
    Dx: Remote left distal femur opening wedge osteotomy with retained, symptomatic hardware and secodary IT band tendinitis/bursitis.
    Procedure: IT band release at the left knee including excision of bursa sac (z-plasty lengthening).

    Thank you!

    27305 and 27340 are the codes. There is no bundling between these codes.
