Arthroscopy Knee - Lysis of Adhesions

    Default Arthroscopy Knee - Lysis of Adhesions
    Medical Coding Books
    Doctor did lateral menisectomy and lysis of adhesions in the medial and patellofemoral compartments. Can lysis be coded with the menisectomy if it is in a separate compartment. 29884 has a separate code designation which always makes me think twice before using it. I'd appreciate input.

    yes you can, double check the cci edits, if it bundles, add the 59 modifier
