Arthroscopic abductor tendon debridement

Reno, NV
Best answers
Procedures performed were:
Hip scope w/ IT Band Lengthening, Trochanteric Bursectomy & Abductor tendon debridement.

I plan on using 29999 w/ compare to 27006 for the IT band lengthening and 27062 for trochanteric bursectomy. Does anyone know if the debridement is included w/the IT Lenthening? If it's not included, does anyone have any thoughts on a correct code?

Thanks so much!
