When I look up Delivery, complicated by: adhesions in the Index, it gives me 654.4_. Look at that code, and I would add a modifier 22 to my c-section code as long as my provider's documentation clearly stated that the adhesions were present and made for a more difficult/work intensive delivery. I hope this helps!
