    I am having trouble finding a code for "arthroscopic anterior-inferior revision capsular shift" of shoulder. I am not familiar with this procedure at all and can only find this under open procedures. Any help would be appreciated.

    look at 29806 (since this is a revision, if documentation supports, add -22 modifier).

    That is the code I was thinking, too. But, the more I looked at the description, the more confused I was getting. Thanks for your help.

    That would be 29806
