    Default 26055 & 26121 or 26123???

    AAPC: Back to School
    Trigger finger: one digit
    Dupuytren's contracture: different digit, same hand

    An incision was made for both Pxs.

    Which is correct?

    26055 & 26121 OR 26123 (with appropriate modifiers)

    26055-Tendon sheath incision (eg, for trigger finger)

    26121-Fasciectomy, palm only, with or without Z-plasty, other local tissue rearrangement, or skin grafting (includes obtaining graft)

    26123-Fasciectomy, partial palmar with release of single digit including proximal interphalangeal joint, with or without Z-plasty, other local tissue rearrangement, or skin grafting (includes obtaining graft);

    Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!!
