    Does anyone know the correct code for incision and drainage vaginal cuff? This procedure was done in the ER. This patient had surgery Total lap hyst on 11-10-10. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Default Please post procedure note

    If you want an accurate response, you need to post the procedure note.

    That said, did you look at CPT 20005?

    Again ... I am NOT at all sure that is accurate without seeing the note.

    Hope that helps.
