Doctor did an extensor tenosynovectomy of all six dorsal compartments of the right wrist

My question is do I charge once or do I charge for each of the six compartments?
I am thinking one charge, but not positive

Help please ?

If you are billing 25118 then I would charge for each compartment. The code states:
SYNOVECTOMY,EXTENSOR TENDON SHEATH,WRIST,SINGLE COMPARTMENT
Just make sure your providers documentation is clear.
