The physician is performing an arthroscopic RTC repair. He performs a biceps tenotomy and states:

"the biceps tendon was then later incorporated in to the rotator cuff repair for tenodesis"

I have not seen this before and am wondering if this documentation really supports billing a biceps tenodesis code.

I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
