27675 sounds like much more than debridement to me. AAOS guidelines include transfer and mobilization of adjacent retinaculum and tenolysis and/or tenosynovectomy except for a different pathological diagnosis as part of 27698. I'm not sure if low lying peroneus brevis muscle belly will get you there. The lay description of 27698 allows for a number of different techniques for the ligment repair which may include the additional work the doctor is doing. Any other opinions?
