    Unhappy Arthroscopic removal soft tissue mass

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone give me an idea for the correct CPT on this?

    My surgeon wants to remove a soft tissue mass from the shoulder, arthroscopically.

    Would appreciate help

    Exactly where is the mass? If he is going to remove through a scope I'm thinking it might be in the joint somewhere or attached to maybe a tendon or the labrum? If so you might be able to code as debridement?
