    How did the laceration happen?

    If the surgeon performing the hysterectomy lacerated the bladder in the course of the surgery I would NOT code for the repair. (You "break" it, you fix it.)

    Thanks for your input I didn't think it was right of him to try and charge for that.

    I agree my docs have done this before and we don't charge for it.

  5. Default bladder repair
    The patient was undergoing a cesarean section for twins. During the course of the procedure, a bladder laceration was notices and urology was consulted. Findings were a laceration on the dome of the bladder.

    This is the case I am looking at right now. Our urologist was called in to correct a bladder wound made by another surgeon. Can we bill for this since it was our surgery originally? What code would you say to use for robotic bladder repair if so?

    Ahh, if it's robotic, you'll use an unlisted code because there are no codes for laparoscopic bladder repairs.
