Thread: Excision of Ganglion Cyst of Shoulder

  1. #1

    Angry Excision of Ganglion Cyst of Shoulder

    If there is one, what is the CPT code for an excision of a ganglion cyst of the shoulder? I've found a code for just about every other part of the body except the shoulder.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

    You will want to look at the Excision codes for the shoulder region (23076 -23078).

    Thanks so much for the reply. I have one question. I saw that code but it is for a soft tissue tumor and I thought it was different with a cyst being a fluid filled sac and a tumor being a mass of soft tissue. So it's okay to use this code for a cyst?

    23076 - Excision, tumor, soft tissue of tumor shoulder area; deep, subfascial (eg, intramuscular); less than 5 cm

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
