    Question Help with ureteroscopy and...

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello! I am new at coding for an urologist. I need to code for a

    1) right ureteral stent removal
    2) right ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy and
    3) right ureteral stent placement

    Also done was an retrograde pyelogram.

    Here's what I came up with, so far...

    52353, 50394-59 and 50387

    Another colleague came up with 50590, 52310, and 52334.

    I feel like I'm missing something or maybe a modifer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
