    Default thank you
    It makes me feel better as that was all I could find also. Maybe in the ICD-10 we will have a specialized code for that.

    I also came up with 354.8. I would be sure the physician documents exactly what this is and how it effect the patient because I am sure the notes will be requested in order to be reimmbursed for the procedure.
