Thread: Help! CPT for Unroofing Hepatic Cysts?

  1. #1

    Default Help! CPT for Unroofing Hepatic Cysts?

    Promo: Code Books
    Anyone?
    Also, it's a Lap. Since there's no Lap CPT for this procedure, and I'm doing anesthesia, I'll have to use the "Anesthesia code that best corresponds to the specific procedure performed"... and not the ASA, the CPT.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
