what is done arthroscopic if so then you would just us 29822 which is for limited debridement or 29823 if it was extensive debridement. hope this helps.

I agree with Trose. 29822/29823 (if done arthroscopically)

drdadhichsunil......The codes you have listed are for a hemiarthroplasty and total arthroplasty, not chondroplasties, therefore not appropriate for the procedure in question.
