i have a question about billing a rib graft to repair valve collapse, it the doctor does not actually harvest it, here is my doctors response

I've not been able to find a code for homologous donor rib so I've always used the code there that includes harvesting. I am not harvesting but am certainly carving and prepping the graft which takes work and time. It is not a synthetic alloplast so I don't think any implant codes are appropriate.

is this billable as 21235?
