I need a code to price an elbow unlisted code 24999, the procedure performed by the doctor is an Outerbridge and Kashiwagi procedure on the elbow. Can you please give me a code that I could use to price the unlisted code? Thanks.

You can compare the price of CPT code 24149. 24149 is for radical resection of capsule, soft tissue, bone of elbow with contracture release (separate procedure). It involves removal of soft tissue as well as removal of bone which is performed in Outerbridge and Kashiwagi procedure.
