    Default Scar Revision

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all
    I am having trouble finding the appropriate code to use for a procedure. My physician performed a Knee Revision on a patient. He also had to do a scar revision. He excised the old scar (approx.15 cm) that ran through the sinus tract down to the extensor mechanism.
    Can anyone please help me???

    We probably should have more information about the surgery before we try to come up with something.

    I am a newbie to this. What type of information do you need and I will try to get as much info as possible?

    if you can, post a copy of the operative report that will give more details about the surgery. That would be helpful so we can possibly help you out.
