CPT Code: 29826
Subacromial decompression (acromioplasty) is an operation used to treat subacromial impingement. This is when the bones and tendons in your shoulder rub against each other when you raise your arm. The operation aims to increase the size of the subacromial area and reduce the pressure on the muscle. It involves cutting the ligament and shaving away the bone spur on the acromion bone. This allows the muscle to heal.
