Smile Umbilical granuloma

When it comes to umbilical granuloma our doctors use the cryotherapy not ligature. The only ligature i could find was under skin tags 11200. I'm not sure if that would be correct though. Maybe someone else will respond too

I would use 11200. This is the correct code to use when using a ligature for extra digits. You are simply removing a benign lesion, so to say....
