I have a physician who has performed the following endoscopic sinus procedures for a patient. On the left side, he performed a concha bullosa resection with a partial middle turbinate reduction and he also resected the uncinate process. He also performed 31254 and 31256. On the right side he partially reduced the middle turbinate and performed a 31256 and 31254. Is there a code for the uncinectomy done endoscopically?

In the 31201 (which is an open procedure) the unicinate process is removed so I am wondering, and I didnt look, I'll leave that up to you to compare with your documentation, if the 31555 will work endoscopically? take a peek and see what you think.
