Thread: icd-9 code for penile adhesions

  1. #1

    Default icd-9 code for penile adhesions

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a 4 year old that came in to the Urology office and is already circumsized that had a lysis of penile adhesions. The dictation states that they developed. That is why I am not sure if I should use a congenital anomaly code. Can anyone help? THANK YOU!

    Default What CPT code

    We perfom this same procedure code 54450 states that this if for uncircumsized can we use this also on a circumsized child? And is this documented somewhere so I can show it to our doctors?

    Thank You

    Default Penile abrasions following circumcision

    What about 998.89 complication following a procedure not otherwise classified- other specified complication ? A child came through our ER with penile adhesions following a circumcision. I'm comfortable with that code.
