    Default help- Arthroscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    New to Ortho Coding.

    Need help with this procedure.

    Arthroscopy and intra-arthroscopic partial lateral meniscectomy and microfracture-technique drilling of the medial femoral condyle and tibial plateau.

    What CPT code do you get for this.


    is it 29881

    You should use 29879 and 29881-51. Hang in there. I am learning a new specialty too. I used to be in orthopedics, you will get it.
