Hello All,
I am stuck on what code(s) to bill for our patient's who have a total hip arthroplasty with application of autogenous cell tissue graft and injection into the hip joint.

An example of what the procedure entails is:
60cc autogenous blood harvested and spun down using Plasmax system. Plasmax tissue autograft used to seal and fill tissue lost during surgery.

Our physicians have been advised to bill 2 ways:
1- 20926 (autogenous cellular tissue graft), 17999 (unlisted skin for the app of tissue graft) and 20610 (injection)
2- 27412 with modifier 52 (autologous condrocyte implantation, knee)

Is anyone else doing this and how are you coding it? Please help!
