We use 27097. I think it should unlisted though with price comparison. I hope this helps.

Smile Gluteus Medius Tendon Repair

Has anyone ever coded this arthroscopically? I believe it is an unlisted 29999 and possibly compared to 27100.

"the gluteus medius was completely avulsed off the bone. The tendon was mobilized up and once the gluteus medius was mobilized the anchors were placed......"

Any information would be greatly appreciated
