Here is a statement/question from my provider....
"Partial vasectomy performed today.
Was able to normally ligate left vas, had difficult anatomy that did not allow safe ligation of right vas today.
Will require a staged vasectomy for remaining right side in 1-2 weeks.

How should today's partial vasectomy be coded, and how should the next completion vasectomy be coded?"

Thanks in advance for your advice.

As per Dr. Ray Painter's discussion in PRS, 2019, I would suggest the following coding for your double clinical scenarios:

First vasectomy 55250-52 -LT
Second vasectomy- 55250-58,-76-52-RT
