    Default help with anal tear repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help with this repair. Anal tears on the posterior and anterior of the anus were repaired with sutures. I have looked at CPT code 4670, anoplasty, and 46760, sphincteroplasty. Neither of these codes seem to be the best choide.
    Thank you for your help!

    use the repair codes by total size, simple, intermediate, or complex by body location...not sure if thats considered trunk or genitalia...make your judgment on that 12001-13153
