    Default Coding discrepancy

    AAPC: Back to School

    I would like an opinion on how to code this orthopoedic procedure/s. The doctor's office and us (the facility) have a discrepancy.

    "Left shoulder exam under anesthesia, diagnostic arthroscopy, arthroscopic debridement of small supraspinatus partial-thickness rotater cuff tear, athroscopic debridement of grade 1 SLAP lesion"

    The body of the operative report reads that it is clearly the same as the description of above.

    Thank you,

    I would say 29823.
