Greetings Y'all!
What is the code for a hip core decompression for avascular necrosis of the femoral head? I have seen the unlisted code used where it was compared to a total hip. In actuality, it is more like a microfracture code. Using a percutaneous guidewire, repeatedly drilling the femoral neck into the femoral head to create bleeding there to reverse the AVN process. I cannot find a code anywhere.
Please help.

Our Orthopedist use 26992-Incision, bone cortex, pelvis and/or hip joint (eg, osteomyelitis or bone abscess). This is an In-patient only code. FYI.
