Newborn with bilateral hand post-axial poly diet polydactyly/supernumerary digits.

First surgery - Ligation bilateral supernumerary digits
Next day - Amputation bilateral hand extra digits

Is this procedure normally performed in two stages? Do you bill separately for each
procedure or only CPT 11200 for both hands?

Thank you.

If the digit contained soft tissue only then yes, use 11200; if it contained soft tissue and bone I would use 26587.
