Annette Posted Fri 08th of April, 2011 19:52:50 PM

Shoulder arthroscopy/surgery Repair rotator cuff, chronic - would I use 29807, 29826 and 23412? What modifiers would I use with that?

Thanks!

If you want to code for "Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair of shoulder", then the code is 29827.
But if you want to use the above three codes in the context of the report that you have, then code sequence with modifiers would be:29807, 23412-51, 29826-59
Use LT or RT modifier as appropriate.

If the context of your question is something else, plz clarify.
