    Exclamation Hand Surgery HELP! - RASL procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know what the CPT code is for RASL (reduction-association scapholunate)???? Dx: "capitolunate disassociation of left wrist". Is there any such thing as a "modified" RASL? If not, should I add mod 52 to the procedure code, whatever it may be? Apparently this is an arthroscopic procedure..

    Talking Thank You!

    Thanks, based on the op report, I think your answer is right on! Do you know where I might be able to get reference material specific to coding for Hand Surgery?
