The code for the tenosynovectomy of the flexor tendon is 26145. What would be the appropriate code for tenosynovectomy of the extensor tendon?

Hi vinod

The code for the Extensor tendon tenosynovectomy would be 25118 or 25119 for wrist and 28088 for extensor tendon foot.

Hope this help you.

I'm referring the the hand/finger per your initial code of 26145 which is specific to the flexor tendon. Look at 26130 or 26140.

I disagree with the 25119 as there is no mention of bony resection in the original post.

I would lean to the 25118 for the wrist, 26130/26140 for the carpalmetacarpal or fingers.
