Doctor did an open tenotomy at the elbow for epicondylitis and did microfracture/drilling at the same time. Would this be an unlisted procedure because of the drilling?

If the documentation supports more than the lay description (bone debridement) for 24358-24359 then the unlisted code for the microfracture would be appropriate.
