Posterior Tibial Tendon Repair: Ankle

Nicole Posted Wed 27th of May, 2015 12:07:24 PM

The provider performed a posterior tibial tendon repair of the ankle. A fiber wire was used to repair the tendon primarily with sutures. The only code I seem to keep getting directed to is the 28238. There was no drilling through the navicular bone and pulling the tendon through. The only other option that seems closest is the 28200- but this is for the flexor tendon of the foot.

Any suggestions?

Use CPT code 28200 for the above procedure.
