Rotator cuff repiar

Shanna Posted Tue 20th of March, 2018 15:32:50 PM
I need the CPT codes for: Right shoulder rotator cuff repair with collagen bovine patch as outpatient ambulatory center and hospital, with subacromial decompression and distal clavicle excision. Place additional allowance for AC arthritis/sprain. Please include anesthesia codes if you have them. Thanks,

As per above scenario, appropriate CPT codes would be 29827 for rotator cuff repair with bovine patch and subacromial decompression and CPT code 29824 for distal claviculectomy with modifier 51 in order to indicate multiple procedures. Bovine patch will not be separately coded. Application of bovine patch will be considered included in the primary procedure. For the Allograft substitute, you can use HCPCS code Q4107 or Q4113 along with CPT code 29827 according to your case.
