revision of hernia repair

    Default revision of hernia repair

    I have a patient that returned 3 days post op for revision of hernia repair performed laparoscopically. I can't find a code.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    It would depend on what type of hernia. Check CPT codes 49650-49657. All of these codes pertain to hernias performed laparoscopically.

    I understand and it was a hiatal hernia but the hernia was already repaired. They went in to revise the repair that was previously completed. Would it still be a hernia repair?
