    AAPC: Back to School
    Could somone help me with the difference between 37765 and 37785
    I'm new to this section and not sure how to decided between the two. The Dr op note reads: The patient was placed
    in a prone position. The right leg was sterilized and prepped in usual
    fashion. Using a total of 7 separate incisions, multiple phlebectomies
    were performed of the veins. Once hemostasis was ensured, incision sites
    were closed with 4-0 Monocryl, and a sterile dressing was applied. The
    patient tolerated the procedure well. Also 37765 is for 10-20 incisions, this was 7 would it be 37799 or 37785.

    Thank you,
