    Default malignat destruction codes.

    Is anyone use the series CPT 17260-17266 malignant destruction codes for
    chemosurgery.

    If so, what is chemosurgery?

    Is it just the physician applying a topic agent to get rid of the malignat lesion?

    input please

    thank you
    daniel, cpc

    Default

    Chemosurgery is a destruction of malgnant lesions using chemicals. Therefore the code range 17260-17286 is the appropriate code range for this service.
