    Default Again 29822 vs 29823

    AAPC: Back to School
    The physician gave diagnoses as Type I labral tear superiorly and supraspinatus tear retracted laterally.

    The procedures he listed was a labral debridement and rotator cuff debridement. He reported as noted above a Type 1 labral tear superiorly and supraspinatus which was retracted several cms medial to the glenoid and was debrided arthroscopically.

    Do I use 29822 or 29823?

    Appreciate your help !!!
