You would attach the 51 to all the codes except the code on the first line (because 51 is indicating multiple procedures) and you do not need it on the 51797 because that is an add-on code and add-on codes do not need the 51 modifier.

Uro coding

You would only be able to bill the 51729 not both it and the 51726 as the 51726 explaining that it is complex and that 51729 is showing what was done within the complex code. You can bill additionally for the 51741 and 51797. I was not able to find the 51772 in the CPT book however. You would put modifier 51 on the lowest $ codes but do not need to for 51797 as it is an add on code.

I hope this helps!
