    CPT 64653. One of our physicians has done this procedure for axillae (64650).

    In reviewing this procedure further, 3M takes me to
    CPT 64999 (for procedure done in hands/ feet).
    Also, in my CPT book (after 64653) is note that indicates that 64999 should be used for this procedure being done in hands or feet.

    Good catch on the hands/feet note in CPT. I missed that. We haven't done hands or feet here, but good info for future! I agree with 64999.
