Hi I am questioning coding the decompression of a ganglion cyst. the patient had shoulder arthroscopy. doctor created an anterior portal and there was large detachment of the superior labrum consistent with a type II SLAP lesion. there was also a large ganglion cyst in this area. the glenoid rim adjacent to the labral detachment was abraded and the ganglion cyst was decompressed in the process. a shaver was then introduced and the labrum was debrided anteriorly, posteriorly and superiorly. decision was make to proceed with superior labral repair.
my question is do I code the decompression of the cyst as well (someone suggested 29999) but would i even bother billing that considering they were already in there doing the SLAP repair.
any advise would be appreciated.
