Does anyone have any information on DEscemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty? Seems to be a relatively new procedure and an alternative to conventional keratoplasty. I can't find a Level I or Cat.III code for this procedure. Anyone successfully bill this out with an unlisted code? Thanks.

when i worked for a corneal specialist, we coded dsek as cpt code 65755. that is what my dr was told to use by sue viccarelli, a corneal coder.
hope this helped.

Thanks for your response. I downloaded a description of the procedure and it seems to be substantially different from Penetrating Keratoplasty. It looks like it should be coded as an unlisted procedure to me.
