Thread: excision of multiple neurofibroma

  1. #1

    Default excision of multiple neurofibroma

    AAPC: Back to School
    operative findings: Neurofibroma noted times three on left foot times three right foot and larger lesion on right side.
    There were three isolated neurofiboma on the tips of the digits, which involved toes, 1,3 and 4. Excision of lesions. Full thickness were performed.
    large one on the navicular tuberossity and a small one at the tip of the third digit and then a large one beneath the fifth metatarsal.

    My question is would it be appropriate to code 64788 Rt x3 64788 LT x3 and 28045 for the larger lesion? dx code I would be using 237.70
    Thanks for your help in advance
