PCL and ACL reconstruction arthroscopically

  1. Question PCL and ACL reconstruction arthroscopically
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anybody know a code for the PCL (i was thinking the 29999) ? and for the ACL I use 29888.

    thank you.

    You should report 29888 (Arthroscopically aided anterior cruciate ligament repair/augmentation or reconstruction) for ACL reconstructions, and 29889 (Arthroscopically aided posterior cruciate ligament repair/augmentation or reconstruction) for PCL reconstructions.
