    Default need help with multiple lipomas CPT code

    AAPC: Back to School

    Doctor performed excision of three lipomas of the right thigh and three lipomas of the left thigh as well as a lipoma of the left flank and lower back. These were all separate incisions.

    For the thighs, would I use code 27618 (leg/ankle joint). It is only for lower leg. I could not find anything for thigh or would I just use 11403 with 51 modifers?

    Thanks for the help.
