    I work as an anesthesia coder and the ASA usually used is 00400=3
    Any new suggestions are always welcomed.

    Default Groin Exploration

    for groin exploration or inguinal biopsy,Use the code 00800 it is more suitable than 00400 .

    Default Groin exploration

    I too am an anesthesia coder and the groin is considered the upper most part of the lower extremities and not the abdominal wall; therefore, I agree that 00400 is the code to use in this case.
