    Default Anterior Tibial Tendon Repair?

    Is there a code for this? We are debating between flexor, extensor or unlisted repair....

    For the anterior tibial tendon repair I would use 27664.

    Thanks! That's where my vote is too. Just waiting for the Dr's office to let me know what the Doctor says.

    Dr's office reported back, they are using 27665, for secondary repair, which I am okay with. Thank you so much for your input ILuvRock!
