can you bill 23405 for the biceps tenotomy?? I just copied that portion of the biceps tenotomy procedure that was done.


A posterior portal was established and the scope was placed in the joint. The shoulder was visualized in stepwise fashion; and a 1-cm rotator cuff tear was present at the anterior aspect of the supraspinatus. Articular cartilage surfaces appeared intact. Biceps tendinopathy was noted. A portal was placed in the rotator interval and biceps tenotomy was carried out using electrocautery.
