    Default Autograft

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me the code that I could use and if I can use for autografts. We do a lot of autografts when we do an ACL recontruction and we have never billed for them. Op Notes states- Sharp dissection through the skin and subcutaneous tissues. The semitendinosus and the gracilis tendons were blunt dissection adn harvested with a blunt tendon stripper. Taken to the table to be prepared for implantion with the rigidfix system.
