    Question assistc section for preclampsia
    Medical Coding Books
    I have not done ob coding in a while but someone asked me if the dx preclampsia is enough to use for a assist surgeon.
    When I coded for gen surgery we always used the exact same dx as the primary doctor.
    Any input would be helpful

    the same rules apply for ob as general surgery , you would use the same codes as the main surgeon
