    Default Drainage of Ganglion Cyst Wrist

    AAPC: Back to School
    What would be correct code be for drainage of ganglion cyst on the wrist? This is NOT an excision of the cyst - just drainage of it.

    Thank you!

    Aspiration of the ganglion is 20612. Was you procedure done in office, or in the OR?
