I was told that you go by where the incision was made. If the incision was made in the CMC are then go with 26480.

We are doing a Wielby, starts with 25447, then transfers the tendon to the CMC. Do we use 25310, or 26480? We feel that 26480 is the code because it is where transfer that tendon to.. Are we right? If so, does anyone have a source document??
