ICD 10 Codes for Flank Pain

  1. #1
    Default ICD 10 Codes for Flank Pain
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm looking for some feedback regarding what codes everyone is using for flank pain.

    I'm using R1012 Left Flank, R1011 Right Flank and R1010 for unspecified.


  2. #2
    Per index Pain > Flank (see Pain, abdominal)

    Looking at one anatomy diagram the flank crosses the border of the upper and lower quadrants but is primarily upper. so it looks to be correct
