My doctor applied a wound vac to a wound measuring 25 x 15 cm (97606). After the initial application, he subsequently took the patient into the OR two more times in the week following. My question is this: The doctor states that he applied the wound vac each time he took the patient in for repeat I&Ds...but he doesn't state the size of the wound in the dictation for the repeat wound vac applications....SO...can I code for the 97606 each time after the initial application since the original application was for a wound 25 x 15 cm?? Thank you for the help. :confused:

My only thing is you should never assume anything. So he really should dictate the size every time.
