DeNovo Procedure

  1. Question DeNovo Procedure
    Clearnace Sale
    Is anyone doing the DeNovo procedure where chondrocyte implantation is being done for lateral femoral condyle? The chondrocytes are not the patients. Our physician did Lateral Meniscal transplant of the knee with scope & we used 29868. He then enlarged the arthrotomy & performed the DeNovo procedure for the lateral femoral condyle. Would we use CPT 27415?
