    Can anyone please tell me the cpt code they would use for a shoulder arthroscopy with subacromial decompression along with a decompression of a calcium deposit, and thats the one that I am not sure of, or if that is included in the SAD. As always, frustrated in ortho coding! Thank you for any help you can give me!

    I would say 29826 Only.

    If the calcium deposit is in the subacromial space, I agree you would just use 29826.
