Help!! My physician did a repair of a SLAP lesion, but also repaired the anterior and posterior labrum in the shoulder. I coded it as a 29807. The anterior and posterior repairs would be included as well, I believe. Am I correct? The physician believes there is an additional code to be billed, 29827, but I disagree as that is for the rotator cuff. There was no capsulorraphy done.

Thanks for your help

Hi,

What you have billed for SLAP lesion 29807 is correct. This code is for the shoulder as a whole anterior and posterior repair included.

Thanks
