Hi All,

Can you take a look at this op note and tell me how you would code it and why, I am coding for the surgeon so just the professional fee side. Thanks so much in advance for your help.

Hi,

I would code this as follows:

50590-RT
52352-XS-RT

The 50590 is for the extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy that was performed on the renal stones, and the 52352 is for the removal of the ureteral stones via cystourethroscopy. The 52352 can get a XS as this a separate structure (ureter) from the initial procedure (kidney).

To add the 52352 includes the removal of the stent left in previously so you cant code separately for the stent removal.
