    Cool Open exc of bipartite fragment of rt patella

    What would you code an open excision of bipartite fragment of right patella with an open lateral retinacular release----the Doc also does an arthroscopic tricompartment synovectomy, and arthroscopic abrasion-arthroplasy and drilling of all three compartments in the knee-------I'm thinking, maybe, this open procedure may be bundled with the open lateral release---??? Any ideas would be appreciated----

    so you have the 29876, 29879 x3 and 27425. My suggestion is 27331 for bipartite patella depending on your documentation. (I have not looked at CCI edits)
