Arthroscopy Knee - Lysis of Adhesions


Best answers
Doctor did lateral menisectomy and lysis of adhesions in the medial and patellofemoral compartments. Can lysis be coded with the menisectomy if it is in a separate compartment. 29884 has a separate code designation which always makes me think twice before using it. I'd appreciate input.
