    Question Removal of subq loose body

    AAPC: Back to School
    Any ideas on how to code this scenario-- Pt has calcific loose bodies under the skin of
    elbow from fall years ago. They are painful, so dr makes incision and "pops them out".
    Three stitches used to close wound. Am looking for procedure and dx codes. Thanks.
