    Default help with knee procedure!
    Medical Coding Books
    I hope someone can help me with this. I think my brain is failing.
    Doc did:
    Extensive lateral release with relocation of chronically dislocated patella, Trochlea-plasty, Tibial tubercle medialization, Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction with soft tissue allograft, and Vastus medialis obliquus tendon imbrication and advancement.
    I am usually good with knee coding, but i think this one is out of my league. any help is appreciated!
