    Default Shoulder Ligament Reconstruction

    Does anyone know CPT codes for coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction and acromioclavicular ligament reconstruction?

    Having a hard time finding these codes..

    Thanks

    Wouldn't this be part of the AC repair? Maybe code 23120 (Mumford Procedure) or 23550 (Weaver-Dunn). I don't see a separate code for repair of the coracoclavicular or acromioclavicular ligaments. Anyone else? Hope this helps.

    I would really need to see a note for this one. It sounds like it might be a fracture dislocation to me.

    Thank you...you pointed me in the right direction. I would have posted the op but it was faxed over to me and it was barely legible.
