Surgeon A performed gyn surgery on her patient. The uterus was perforated during surgery and General Surgeon B performed the repair. Can I bill for the general surgeon's repair and if so what CPT code would apply?

Are both surgeons in the same group billing under the same TIN? I would not bill for the repair if they are, since someone in the group caused the injury.

Co-surgeons

The surgerons are in different practices...One is OB/GYN and the other is a GEN surgeon. The general surgeon is the one who performed the uterine laceration repair.
