modified Bowers question

  1. Lightbulb modified Bowers question
    Medical Coding Books
    Trying to precert an upcoming surgery and doctor states he is going to do a modified
    Bowers procedure and possible split ECU tendon stableization.
    I have not been able to find anything for a modified Bowers procedure. I am thinking of 25310 for the ECU tendon stableization. Am I on the right track? I would appreciate any help, especially with the modifed Bowers procedure.
    Thank you

    Have you looked at code 25240. A

    I think I would use 25240 for the modified Bowers procedure, if that is all that is performed. However, CPT 25337 includes tendon transfer, graft, weave, or tenodesis. My physician uses this particular CPT when he does an ECU transfer. Hope this helps, have a great day!
