Dr. performed surgery under same anesthesia as another specialty

  1. Default Dr. performed surgery under same anesthesia as another specialty
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello all,

    I just wanted to double check this situation:

    Our physician performed ORIF under same anesthesia as another specialty that performed DVT. The ORIF was done after completion of the DVT. Would I need a modifier? I am thinking no.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kim, CPC
