Pt lacerated right 4th finger profundus AND superficialis tendons. Am I missing the CPT code for this? All I see is 26370 - repair of profundus tendon with "intact superficialis" tendon.:confused:

I wouldn't use 26370 as the superficialis is not intact. I would suggest 26356 (x2) for both tendons assuming this is a primary repair.
26356- for flexor profundus
26356 - 59 - for superficialis
