    Hello~

    My MD did an incision and drainage on a postoperative infection of the shoulder. He did this arthroscopically. I am having a hard time finding a CPT code for this. I wonder if it would be the unlisted code. Any takers??

    Much appreciated,
    Valerie

    The procedure was done arthroscopically.... so the 10180 would not apply...
