    One of my drs did a incarcerated ventral hernia report and excision of scar tissue mass in the subcutaneous tissue. Is there a code for the scar tissue removal?

    Thanks

    was this "scar tissue" excised from the entry point of the incision for the hernia? If so, then I would consider it his approach.
