I need help with a code for Radiofrequency Ablation of the iliopsoas tendon for fractional lengthening for snapping hip syndrome. The nearest I could find is 27006 which is an open procedure. This surgery was done with a femoroplasty, code 29914. Thank you.

There is no specific CPT code for RFA of tendon(s). CPT code 27006 is specific to open tenotomy, not for radiofrequency ablation. Use unlisted CPT code 27299 (Unlisted procedure, pelvis or hip joint) for reporting this procedure as there is no specific code for this procedure.
