Hi there is no as such code for this procedure. You can use CPT code 26480 (Tendon transplantation or transfer, carpometacarpal area or dorsum of hand; without free graft, each tendon) or 26483 (Tendon transplantation or transfer, carpometacarpal area or dorsum of hand;
with free tendon graft (includes obtaining graft), each tendon) for it accordingly.
