open debridement knee


Winter Springs, FL
Best answers
Patient had a Total knee done about 9 months ago. Has stiffness.

Doctor wants to do an open debridement w/ possible lysis of adhesions. OK, I know
what arthroscopic codes to use, but what do I use for an open procedure ? I really
need your help.
Thank you
