I was wondering if a dr. "Harvests articular cartilage for Genzyme ACI procedure arthroscopically", would I code the 29870? But if he does another knee arthroscopy procedure then I cannot use the 29870, am I correct or should I be using a different code for the harvest? thank you for any imput.

It is my understanding that if another procedure is performed then it is included in that
procedure.
However, if that is the only procedure done, then you use 29870.
