Informed consent was obtained. Patient and procedure site were confirmed. The injection site was cleansed. The soft tissue at the palmar base of the finger injected with 40 mg Depo Medrol, 1 mL of Lidocaine, and 1 mL 0.5% marcaine. Patient tolerated procedure well.

Please advise with cpt codes and HCPCS codes.

Thank you,
