    Question Right Shoulder open Bankart procedure
    Exam Training Packages
    Hi I'm trying to properly code this procedure and what I have so far is just CPT code 23455 and I'm wonder because the surgeon did some debriebment in the capsule if it would call for another code or would that be included?

    I believe the debridement would be included in the repair.
