    New Call-to-action
    Hi All,

    Does anyone know if CPT 25109, resection flexor tendon is included in surgery CPT code 64721 for Release of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
    I only see the Median nerve as provider responsibility for 64721. If following median nerve resection, the provider notices moderate synovial reaction on flexor tendons and subsequently resects tendons, can I code separately for tendons resection with modifier 59 / XS?

    Default No edit for this
    There is no NCCI edit, so you should not need a -59 o XS modifier.

    Just make sure that your diagnosis for it is supported.
