My provider performed a total hip arthroplasty (27130) and repaired a partial thickness tear in the gluteus medius. I cannot find a code anywhere, is this inclusive, or am I to use an unlisted code?

Repair of tear is included in total hip arthroplasty.

Is there still no listed code for a gluteus medius repair as a standalone procedure? If not would I use the unlisted code of 27299 or is there a better one?

CPT codes 27006,27025,27027,27057 can help as standalone code.
