Takedown of adhesions

  1. Default Takedown of adhesions
    Medical Coding Books
    Does any one know how to code for takedown of adhesions in the shoulder, Im thinking that it might be 29825 but im not quite sure.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    If it's through the scope then I would say 29825 would apply, if it's open then revert to your open shoulder codes.

    Have a good day!
