    Question Need help with Urology CPT code
    Medical Coding Books
    The Urologist did a 52276 = Cystourethroscopy with direct vision internal urethrotomy. He also wants us to code a complex Uretheral Cath. Patient is male. Is this included with 52276? If not how would you code the complex Uretheral Cath?

    Thanks,

    Sherry

    If his documentation supports it, you may be able to use a 22 modifier. The catheter placement is inclusive to the cysto.

    hope this helps
