Does anyone know the correct code to use for an open biopsy of multiple sentinel deep inguinal lymph nodes? CPT 38500 description appears to apply to open biopsy or excision of superficial lymph nodes; not deep. Also considered using CPT 38562; however, this procedure applies to staging and none of the supporting ICD-9 codes are appropriate.

HELP!!!
