29838 Arthroscopic Elbow Debridement with Micro Fracture of Capitellum

Everything I have read states that correct coding for the micro-fracture of the capitellum (to promote healing) would be unlisted 29999 because there is no code for this being performed through the scope for the elbow.

Would it be appropriate to code 29999 for the micro-fracture separately from 29838? If not, would the micro-fracture just be inclusive to the extensive debridement 29838 or should we bill unlisted 29999 only?
