"There was a partial rupture to the achilles tendon 6 months ago. MRI consistant with degenerative change within the tendon.
The peritenon was divided & the degenerative area was debrided & then it was repaired" now I think maybe 27654?

I pray that that is not the complete op note :eek: but yes 27650/27654 would be appropriate dependent on the rest of the documentation.
