    Default need comparrison code for 29999-thermal capsulorrhaphy

    AAPC: Back to School

    I am hoping someone can give me advice for a comparrison code to use....
    Doctor did an arthroscopic thermal capsulorrhaphy on the anteroir glenohumeral ligament and capsule. I know this will be unlisted 29999, but cant seem to find a similar code for basing the RVU's etc.

    Thanks so much!!!!!
