    My urologist went in and removed from the tip of the penis/Urethra a stone with forceps and broke it up and removed it, it was not done by cysto and I am not finding a CPT code to use for this, any help please?

    Thank you, I was thinking that but was hoping for a code. That helps.

    Greetings! You might want to try removal of a foreign body from the urethra. I know there is a code for this. I don't have anything in front of me to look it up for you. Thank you!
