Hello!
I have a doctor wanting to use 00170 for a urethroplasty because he obtained a buccal graft.
It is my understanding that you cannot code the site that the graft came from, but rather the site that the graft is GOING.
Is this correct?

You are correct. You should be coding for where it's going to not from. If you were to send a claim in w/ the 00170 with a urinary dio, you won't be paid. You're sites must match.
