    You can use CPT code 52317 or 52318 for complicated or large stones(over 2.5cm)

    The code you are looking for is under Litholapaxy, 52317 if it is greater than 2.5 cm then bill 52318.

  6. Default
    The code says >< 2.5 cm. If you have 3 stones is it the total of all three stones or one stone should be greater than 2.5cm to use 52318?
