i am coding a procedure that includes:

arthroscopic medial menisectomy 29881

arthroscopic osteophyte excision of tibia.??

it reads.....the medial compartment was visualized first. this was arthritic. there was an osteophye in the middle of the tibial condyle that was planes smooth. there was some degenerative fraying of the meniscus which was debrided but only represented 30% partial menisectomy. there were condral changes in both the tibial and femoeal sides. these were debrided. the femoral notch was visualized there was a huge tibial spine osteophyte that impinged and prevented full extension. i elected to excise this. this was done with a pituitary rogour and a burr back to smooth base this was just anterior to the
acl



thanks in advance for any advice! :)

Hi,

I was wondering if you anyone ever figured this out.....

I'm relatively new to ortho coding and have the exact same situation.

Thanks in advance.
