From the front side, the collar bone is attached to the shoulder and from the arm, the humerus is attached (largest bone of the arm).

    CPT Code For Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

    The position of metal ball and socket is switched in the procedure of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. The position of the metal ball is fixed in the socket with a fixed plastic cup to the humerus upper side. The procedure is performed under CPT code 23472.

    Shoulder Procedure CPT Code

    CPT Code For Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

    Right Shoulder Arthroscopy CPT Code

    When any repair of the right sided shoulder is performed, the CPT code 23472 is used. The procedure involves an arthroscope with a mounted camera to view inside and aid in repairing. The damaged or diseased part is removed or repaired in this procedure.

    Shoulder Manipulation Under Anesthesia CPT Code

    Shoulder manipulation is the procedure of making shoulder movable. The scar tissue which causes pain and limited movement of shoulder, is removed in shoulder manipulation and the wide range of movement is obtained. The CPT code for shoulder manipulation is 23700.

    MRI Arthrogram Shoulder CPT Code

    Arthrogram uses the imaging technique on the computer of the shoulder and other joints of the body. The internal imaging can be easily seen on the computer screen. With the aid of imaging, MRI of shoulder joint is performed. MRI is a diagnostic test. The CPT code of this procedure is 23350.

    Left Shoulder Arthroscopy CPT Code

    The arthroscopy procedure involves an arthroscope to be sent inside the shoulder. The arthroscope has a camera on top for the purpose of internal imaging. With its help, the diseased or damaged part of the shoulder is repaired. The CPT code of this procedure is 23472.

    Cpt Code For Shoulder Arthroscopy With Subacromial Decompression

    Through subacromial decompression, shoulder impingement is treated. The patient feels pain while moving their arm upward. So an arthroscope is used to aid in this procedure. It has a camera mounted on top for guidance. The CPT code is 29826.

    CPT Code For Shoulder Arthroscopy With Labral Repair
