Please help! Does anyone know what the proper code would be for open popliteus tendon advancment in the knee?

Op report reads as follows:

The popliteus was then detached off the femur. I mobilized the popliteus and elected to proceed with advancement. A Bio-tenodesis set up was used. I used a Fiber Loop and wove the distal 2 cm of tendon with a grasping stitch. I then used a Beath needle to advance this through a 6 mm tunnel. The Beath needle was taken out medially with the sutures, and the poplitus was tightened in this fashion. The popliteus was advanced and secured with a single Bio-Tenodesis screw.
