I'm a new coder and not sure if I have the correct code. The doctor says in the op report that he placed a stent in between the vocal cords and he did a direct laryngoscopy to confirm stent placement. He wrote down code 31536 Largynoscopy, direct, opertaive, with biopsy; with operating microscope or telescope. I don't see anything in the report about a biopsy and would that code include the confirmation of stent placement? I want to make sure this is correct and I can't find a different code for a DL with stent placement.

Thank you
