Quick clarification please. Doc opens 6 SEPARATE stapled wounds in OR for post op infection. All drain purulent fluid. This is a medicare patient. All wounds left open.

CPT 10180 -52
10180 -XS,52
10180 -XS,52
10180 -XS,52
10180 -XS,52
10180 -XS,52




Just want clarification that I would not be using units for this, but listing each one as above.

Thanks for your help.

It is my understanding that you would use modifier 78 and the DX codes would indicate complications of surgery. Also, in order to use -XS, those 6 wounds would have to be on 6 separate organs or structures.
