Doc did an arthroscopic repair of the medial patellofemoral ligament by using three simple sutures across the torn area of the medial retinaculum.

What CPT code do I use or is this unlisted?

Was repair of the retinaculum the intent of the procedure, or was it an incidental finding? If it was the latter, I don't know that it would be considered signficant enough to bill seperately. Otherwise I do think you'd have to use an unlisted code.
