Thread: cpt code for removal testicular prosthesis

    Default cpt code for removal testicular prosthesis

    AAPC: Back to School
    What cpt code would be used for removal of testicular prosthesis (it is infected). The insertion is cpt code 55660, but i can't seem to locate a removal code. Would i just use removal of foriegn body in scrotum 55120?

    Thanks for the help!

    Default I think so ...

    This is NOT my area of expertise, but I believe you are correct ... 55120.
