I am new to ENT coding and we have a new surgeon. She is performing the dissection of recurrent laryngeal nerve for another surgeon who is actually performing the esophagotomy. Is there a specific procedure code I should use for the dissection or would both surgeons attach modifier 62 to the esophagotomy procedure code? Or should I be coding this some other way. I cannot locate a code for the dissection itself.
Thank you,
Beverly

Need a little more info, esophagotomy? or esophagectomy? do you know what CPT code the other surgeon is using and what the diagnosis is?
