I have a child who is uncircumcised who's foreskin got stuck in the netting of his bathing suit. The doctor was able to remove the netting w/ forceps and scissors w/out difficultly.
Would this be coded as just and E/M office visit or is there code for this? I don't really think this qualifies as a foreign body/removal.

Any help is appreciated.

I don't think it qualifies for manipulation of foreskin code 54450 - that's whole different procedure (and reason for it). Code the E/M level - (poor little boy, how traumatic for him!) :(
