Although I am uncertain of the exact CPT code, the surgeon will at times perform an open abdominal incision and will pack the area and leave the wound open until the next day when the surgeon will remove the packing and irrigate the area.

is there a modifier that should be appended with the 2nd procedure? this is a slightly different procedure than the first procedure, but by the same physician.

Please advise.

Thanks, Marta
