REVISION THUMB CMC ATHROPLASTY W/CAPSULAR REPAIR

Need help with CPT(s) on the above.  25447 & 26520?

Brief description: Incision was made inline with the previous incision over the left thumb. There was complete rupture of the dorsal capsule of the trapezial metacarpal joint. I was able to re-interpose the FCR into the base of the thumb metacarpal and re-approximate the capsular tissue. I was able to stress the thumb with flexion and extension as well as compression and circumduction. There was stable complete stability noted without subsidence after capsular repair was reconstructed.

Thank you,
