Pt goes back to the OR after approx 2 months - MD removes a suture knot and necrotic abd skin around the knot.......original surgery was an oopherectomy.

Would I code 11005? It was a done by a different MD in our practice than the original MD - do I need a modifier since they are in the same group?

Thanks!:confused:
