    Default Laceration vulva/labia

    AAPC: Back to School
    We had a pt that is 13 days postpartum and has a laceration/tear of the labia from childbirth. The delivering doctor is going to take her back to surgery and excise and repair the laceration. I know I can't use 59300. Would 15839 be the correct procedure with a 78 modifier? Thank you for any help!!

    Is this a dehisence of a previous repair?

    How about the "Repair" codes (ie: Simple, Intermediate) in the Integumentary section of CPT?
