I have a surgery to code listing the following procedures; Arthroscopy, labral debridement, rotator cuff debridement, subacromial decompressin, and resection of the AC joint. I have searched for correct codes to bill together. I have come up with 29826 and 29823. Does anyone agree with this? I am new at orthopedic surgeries and alot of the codes bundle. Thanks for any input.

I'm still looking at this but...

I can tell that if they are both right, one will need a 51 modifier. I'm still looking, though...I'm slow!:eek:
