    Question Pam

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for a CPT for peroneus longus to brevis tenodesis. The closest I can find is 27691 and the surgeon agrees that code does not fit. Here is a description from the op note: ....The peroneus longus tendon was debrided of its calcific tendinous portion to healthy-appearing tendon and then with the footprint in neutral position and slightly everted a tenodesis was performed with the peroneus longus to peroneous brevis. ....
    Any ideas please?

    for repair of peroneal brevis tendon I was told to use 27664.

    we do use the 27691 for PL to PB transfer.... for repair I agree with either 27664 or 27675.
