Red face rotator cuff repair

need some help doctor did a arthoscopy rt shoulder open exploration followed by a repair of a large retracted tear, full thickness rotator cuff tendon supplemented with the tornier conexa tissue graft.

Doctor is billing a 23420 with tissue augmentation.

1) is the augmentation included in the cpt code?

2) if not what code would be used for the tissue augmentation?

PLEASE help....
