Title: CPT 29824
Post by: BHami on January 10, 2012, 11:40:44 AM
I have a question regarding the Mumford procedure. The physician dictates that he performed a "parital distal clavicle excision", but no size is dictated. I have articles stating that in the open procedure has to be performed for 1cm, but I cannot seem to find anything regarding 29824, since this is a "partial" excision, should this even be coded?  Thank You so much!
