I would like another opinion on this. The ENT has been dictating his SMR: Bilateral inferior turbinates were submucosally resected in the usual fashion with a 2.0 Medtronic inferior turbinate submucosal resection blade until the desired therapeutic effect was achieved. There were no complications. Do you think this supports coding a 30140? Any comments are appreciated.

Check out CPT Assistant May 2003 Nasal Turbinate Surgery. It provides some information on what the doc needs to include in the op report.
