Thread: Chondrocyte implantation

    Cool Chondrocyte implantation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Surgeon did a chondrocyte implantation of the femoral trachlea and the medial femoral
    condyle, left knee.

    I know the CPT is 27412. My question is, can I charge this twice? I don't think so,
    but want to be sure.
    Appreciate any opinions.

    good question, have not had this case before but gut is telling once. I would also check for any medical policies.
    Anyone else??
