    Cool sternoclavicular joint

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help. I am trying to determine which code to use because I can't find exactly what I am looking for.

    Debridement with resection of sternoclavicular joint.

    I was thinking 23101 but it says nothing about debridement.

    Any suggestions, are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Julie...
    Excisional debridement of soft tissue is inclusive per CCI edits.
