How would I code the following:
DIAGNOSIS: Right peroneal brevis tear with peroneal tendon ganglion.
1.Exploration of the peroneal tendons, right, with resection of ganglion.
2.Synovectomy of the peroneal longus and brevis tendons, right.
3.Tubularization repair of the peroneal brevis tendon, right.

27658-RT, 28086-RT, 27630-RT-59 (Bill this code with -59 modifier, if the ganglion was resected from the tendon other than Peroneal brevis tendon). If performed on Peronneal brevis, the procedure is included in CPT code 27658.
