One of my urologist will do a scrotal exploration for undescended testis and find out that it is an atrophic testis (testicular nubbin, testicular remnant, vanished testis) How is everyone coding these? 1-simple orchiectomy 54520 or 2-scrotal exploration 55110. Per CCI scrotal exploration is bundled into the orchiectomy so we can't bill both.

Thank you in advance for your help
