    Default Trapeziometacarpal arthroplasty

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone help with a CPT code for trapeziometacarpal arthroplasty. The DX is DJD of the thumb. Proximal release of the flexor carporadialis tendon was performed. All the codes I have looked at include prosthetic replacement and this was not done.

    Could you not use 25445-52. Services being reduced by prosthesis not being done.
