We have a surgeon who is planning to perform an ACL procedure using the InternalBrace TM Technique. The surgeon is asking if she would still report CPT code 29888, use a modifier 52, or an unlisted code. Are you able to advise? I do not have an operative note to send.
Thank you for your inquiry and recognizing we are not able to provide definitive coding advice without an operative note. This is a good question.
In this case, based on your inquiry, let your surgeon know she will report CPT code 29888 without any modifiers. The CPT code states repair/augmentation or reconstruction. Please share with your surgeon KZA appreciates her due diligence in her planning process.
