Title: bariatric
Post by: VMDS on February 19, 2016, 10:46:48 AM
I have a patient that just had a lap band removal and she is now having pain in her incisions. My doctor wants to do a wound exploration to make sure he didn't hit/cut a nerve. He said its a local incision exploration under mac anesthesia. I can not seem to find a cpt code to fit. Please help

I am not a certified coder but I would look at cpt 20102 and see if that is what was done.
