    Unhappy Help code ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves lysed
    Medical Coding Books
    PT seen in OP for RT Inguinal hernia repair (49505). During procedure MD also lysed the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves. The CPT provided was 64722 but I don't believe this is a compression of a nerve but I am unable to find a more descriptive neurectomy or lysis of this kind. Please help

  2. Default Ileoinguinal Neurectomy
    Did anyone suggest a CPT yet for an ilioinguinal neurectomy ? Thanks! JMH

  3. Default
    Look at 64772
