I need a opinion.

The Operative report indicates "began by removing some relatively dense adhesions of rectosigmoid colon to the left tube and ovary into the cul-de-sac as well a the posterior uterus. I think if justified we can code to lysis of adhesions correct?

IF so, do you feel it is justified to also code for the lysis of adhesions? I think that there is not enough to justify but I know the physician will ask why.

Thanks,
