CPT for Internal Hemorrhoidectomy ?

  1. Default CPT for Internal Hemorrhoidectomy ?
    Medical Coding Books
    A patient had a right posterior hemorrhoidal bundle & left lateral hemorrhoidal bundle excised. Which would be internal hemorrhoids but cannot find a specific code for excision of internal hemorrhoids. Would CPT code 46922 be correct to use? Your direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Without seeing the op note...I think you may want to look at the code series of 462XX.
