Hi! I am new at coding for an urologist. I need codes for a

1) right ureteral stent removal
2) right ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy ad
3) right ureteral stent placement
4) also done was a retrograde pyelogram

Are the correct codes 52353, 50394-59 and 50387?

Someone else suggested 52353 RT and 52332-59-RT.
Please help me!

Suzanne-
The codes for stent removal, 52310, cannot be billed w/52332, stent placement. The lithotripsy code is correct but you cannot bill retrograde pyelogram, 52005 with 52332. So the correct code is 52353 & 52332. There is no need for the 59 modifier with 52332 anymore.
