    Default assistance in coding op report

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would appreciate nay help in coding.
    The inferomedial and infraportals were established through which the knee was examined and noted to have medial and lateal meniscal tear. This was smoothed down to stabilize edges using the meniscal shaver. The small plica was also removed anteriorly and a small area of chondromalcia under the kneecap was also debrided. Attention was then turned to the anterior patella through a 2 cm incision. A large suprapatellar mass was removed and sent for pathological analysis, which appeared to be a large gouty tophus.
    I was thinking 29880, 27355,? your help would greatly appreciated
