    Wink fat graft

    AAPC: CPC Promo
    Good Morning, All! I think this forum is wonderful!!!

    I have a doc who did an autologous fat graft (harvested from the abdomen) injection into a paralyzed vocal fold. This was performed under suspension micro-laryngoscopy. Any suggestions on how this would be (CPT) coded?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Nancy,

    20926 Tissue Grafts Other, ( paratenon, Fat, Dermis)

    The physician harvests a tissue graft not covered in any other code, we do this procedure frequently when harvesting a fat graft for our TypeI tympanoplasty's.

    Hope this helps
