    It depends on which part of the arm he/she is working on, and if it is open or arthroscopic. Open look at 64721, arthroscopic 29848. that is if it is in the wrist, for carpal tunnel.

    Wink ulnar nerve subluxation

    You know, if it is an injury, I would use 955.2. I wish there were more choices for this dx, but we are very limited. Wait until ICD-10!
