Our surgeon documented a repair of the patella tendon with repair of the medial retinaculum repair. The surgeon wants to code for the retinacular repairs and I can’t find a CPT code. Are you able to assist?
Thanks for your inquiry. A retinacular repair is inclusive to other surgical repairs (e.g. tendon or ligament) thus there is no additional code to report.
