Revision of Acromioplasty?

    Default Revision of Acromioplasty?
    Exam Training Packages
    I have a SLAP repair with an RC repair...and then this:

    Once the SLAP repair was complete, a revision acromioplasty was then performed for residual anterior medial spur.

    That's all he gave me and he won't amend his dictation....29826/52? or is this even enough documentation to support that?

    Thanks
