Manual Reduction of testicular dislocation

  1. Default Manual Reduction of testicular dislocation
    New Call-to-action
    Looking for a CPT code to use. The doctor tried to do it by bedside but was unable due to discomfort so they decided to do it under anesthesia.

    I came to examine the patient and did find that his left testicle has been dislocated and was riding up into the inguinal canal. The right testicle was present without masses or defects. I then placed a significant amount of pressure to slowly milk the testicle down and it popped through the external ring and down into the scrotum. I palpated the testicle again and it appeared to be in good position and there was no swelling or immediate bruising appreciated. There was some ecchymosis at the base of the penis as well as the mons pubis region from his injury, but there was no complications during the reduction of the dislocation.

    Would this just be a 99212? I don't believe there is any CPT code that would go with this?

  2. Default
    I guess I could not bill this as a 99212 because the patient is inpatient. So would this be 99231?
