SLAP repair with Bankart Repair

  1. Default SLAP repair with Bankart Repair
    Medical Coding Books
    The physician reported the diagnoses - Bankart lesion and Type II SLAP repair. Is this an example of using 29806 and 29087 at the same time -

    Would really appreciate all your help.

    THANKS!!!!

    Yes...but be careful. Make sure the 2 lesions that are being repaired are separate lesions/issues and that the SLAP is Type 2 or 4. But what I look for is repair in separate areas of the labrum (i.e 12 o'clock and 4 o'clock.)

  3. Default SLAP and Bankart
    Thanks NYYANKEES - really appreciate your help!!!
