Debridement and Irrigation on knee with bone cement

    Default Debridement and Irrigation on knee with bone cement
    Medical Coding Books
    The only cpt code that my coders can come up with is unlisted--27599. I need to compare it to something and that where the problem is. The procedure is: lt knee wound irrigation and debridement with placement of triple antibiotic impregnated bone cement.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hm. Wonder why they went unlsited instead of trying 11981, 27310 (best guess for knee i/d based on little info!)
