    from everything I have read, this is more of a technique used that doesnt require any additional incisions/portals. I dont think it will qualify for an additional code. This is only my opinion without seeing an op note that addresses one though.

    Default remplissage procedure with bankart repair

    Hi Gerri,
    I did some research into this type of procedure and came up with CPT 29806 for the arthroscopic bankart repair and I agree with you that your only other choice to bill the remplissage procedure is the unlisted arthroscopic code 29999.
    Thank you,
