Hi,

I am hoping someone can help me with my coding dilemma...during a typical Carpal Tunnel release the surgeon noted that there was an accessory tendon draped over the median nerve and defined it as a the palmaris profundus tendon. He excised this tendon. I am hoping someone can help me determine if I can bill this separate from the Carpal tunnel surgery and what is the best CPT code to use. Thanks!!

Without seeing the op report, I would code this as:

DX: Q68.8, G56.00
CPT: 25109, 64721
