When our doctor's perform an intra operative consultation along with surgery we usually bill a low level inpatient consult with -57 and the surgery CPT code. If he does not perform surgery on the patient he usually has more time to review the history and give a more detailed exam and the consults are billed at the higher lever. He dictates the consult on his operative report so we can pick up together. Not sure if that is what you are asking but we use inpartient consult codes along with the correct surgery code.
