    Default microfracture of a lateral femoral condyle defect

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone help me? I need a code for an arthroscopic microfracture of a lateral femoral condyle defect. He did not do any grafting. He also did a partial lateral meniscectomy at the same time. Thanks for the help.
