Table Of Risk

  1. Question Table Of Risk
    Medical Coding Books
    Could I get some input as to where cryosurgery should be considered on the table of risk as far as management options. I have always considered it to be low but I have a new supervisor and now it is being questioned differently. Some other opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    I work for a dermatology practice, and we consider cryo as "low" level of risk. There is still the possibility of burning the skin... that's my two cents...
    any other opinions????

    I agree, it looks like it would be low to me as well. If the patient had risk factors (not sure what they would be for this procedure) it could be moderate.
