Hello all,

lateral canthus lesion was excised...."a flap was elevated and sutured to the ordbital rim perosteum with interrupted 4-0 Vicryl sutures in the deep layers and then the subq layers were closed with interrupted 4-0 Vicryl sutures and skin closed with 6-0 Prolene sutures.\

Enough to bill 14060 or more layered/complex repair?

Thanks

Jamie

My Thoughts

I would probably code 14060, but I would ask the provider to give a better description of the procedure. Better yet, you can always present both codes to him, and have him select the one that is appropriate. I hope this helps.
