    Default Proximal Hamstring Repair
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know a good CPT code to describe a proximal hamstring open repair for a ruptured hamstring other than 27385. Having trouble...

    Thanks...

    The only other code I saw was 27097, but not sure if that is what you want. How come you can't use 27385?

    LOL...If she did more extensive work than 27385 add 22 mod and increase the fee some. That is all I can tell ya. Good luck!
