Thread: Transobturator Tape Procedure

    Question Transobturator Tape Procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone help me? I am just getting into billing urology procedures and am a little confused on the transobturator tape procedure for stress urinary incontinence. Is this different from a sling procedure? Is there a different code for this than the sling procedure (57288). I even wondered if I should use the unlisted code. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    We use 57288 at our office (ASC's) as well for the tvt tape/mesh.
