    Default hip abductor

    I'm no expert at this type of coding, did you consider 27001? since there was an avulsion of the adductor of the hip, procedure would have to be open - right?

    I believe there is no listed code for repair of abductor tendon (aka gluteus medius), hip. We use an unlisted code, 27299, with a comp code of 27385.

    Any other opionions on this one?
