    Default Supraglottoplasty

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a surgeon who is doing a Supraglottoplasty using a CO2 laser on a 2 month old. He is doing this because of Laryngomalacia. I need to know what code to use for this surgery on a pediatric patient. Thanks in advance!

    I use 31588 for the laser supraglottaplasty. This is the code we were directed to use by the AMA.
