    Question Shoulder Arthroplasty-resurfacing of the glenoid
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone have any experience if coding a shoulder arthroplasty with a resurfacing of the glenoid? Is it a hemi or total is the question.
    Any help or opinions would be appreciated.

    I believe this would be a hemi 23470 as the glenoid is being resurfaced.
