:confused:
If the surgeon only does a synovectomy to view the ACL and the ACL was intact can I still code it? In the op report it also states synovectomy done to visualize the tracking of the patellofemoral joint which is found that the joint tracked normally.

Please advise!!

I dont think so. Just bill diagnostic arthroscopy 29870. There is no medical necessity for synovectomy.
