    Default Ossicle

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doc removed ossicle that was loose but stuck in patellar tendon.

    I am thinking loose body removal but can't seem to find one, he did not go into the joint at all..no arthrotomy?

    Any help please?

    One of my knee surgeons uses 27360 for bony ossicle, Osgood-Schlatter, and "Wolford" procedures.... hope that helps you.
