    Angry Microfracture

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help with coding an ankle microfracture. Would you use CPT 29999 or 29892. Thanks

    I would go with unlisted 29999.

    Take a look at 29891. Depending on where the drilling/microfracture is being done, you may be able to use that code.

    Can you provide more detail about your query. I can only clarify when got more detail.
