Hello everyone this is actually my first posting here.

I have an op report that states open partial bursectomy of shoulder and exploration of rotator cuff. Does anyone know what codes to use, Im thinking 23130 for the bursectomy?

thanks!:)

I come up with CPT 23929--unlisted procedure shoulder for the bursectomy.
CPT is for acromioplasty or acromionectomy.

For open bursectomy, use code 23130 or 23415 if coracoacromial ligament is released. For arthroscopy procedure, use 29826; bursectomy is included but only if another major procedure was performed since 29826 is an add on code.
