Thread: destruction of cervical lesion

    Default destruction of cervical lesion

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our Ob/gyn doc performed colpo with biopsy and a destruction of cervical lesion by cautery. What cpt codes you suggest? Debating on 57421 and 17110. Or for the destruction would 57511 fit? Thanks for any help

    Unfortunately it is a handwritten note and I can barely read it, the only words I can make out for sure are colpo and cautery.............see my problem? I know from the chicken scratch is that a colposcopy was done and I know a lesion was cauterized not biopsied. Any ideas?
