26145 tenosynovectomy - bill it once or twice ?

looking for more opinions on this one - I have one coder billing 26145 twice and another only once - when tenosynovectomy of the flexor digitorum superficialis and flexor digitorum (also a TFR)  It is the same finger?? thoughts .
I say once since there is scar tissue and some adhesions  your thoughts???


  • Good morning, the CPT code description for 26145 is for each tendon.
  • I was looking at 26145 because more that just a trigger release was done. he did work on both tendons, do you agree billling 26145 over 26055?
