MD does laryngoscopy with biopsy on throat and I&D of abscess/phlegmon
Patient develops bleeding.
Patient brought back to OR later on same day for cautery for bleeding at biopsy site.
Patient brought back NEXT day for more bleeding at biopsy site which is again cauterized and oversewn. A second biopsy is done at this time.
What would the CPT codes be for these 3 trips to OR?
thank you
