Repair of chronic achilles rupture w/FHL tendon graft
Hi, Need some clarification on the repair of chronic achilles rupture. My understanding is that the primary repair (27650) is for use when it is a new rupture and that the secondary repair (27654) is for a chronic tear. Now per Supercoder the secondary repair (27654)is that the provider is repairing it a 2nd time. With this new information I was thinking that I should use the 27652 and that the FHL tendon graft is included. My doc is coding it as 27654 and 27691?? Any clarification is appreciated.
