Thread: Excision - Hypertrphied Anal Papilla

    Default Excision - Hypertrphied Anal Papilla

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doctor removed anal papilla by electrocautery. The only code I can find that is specific to anal papilla is 46230, which is excision by sharp incision. I'm considering 11200 Removal of Skin Tags any area or 46910/46924 Destruction of Anal lesions by electrodessication. Any one have a better code for this procedure? Thanks.

    If it were me, I'd go with procedure 46910.

    I agree, use 46910. 46924 is an extensive procedure.

  4. #4


    46910 -Destruction of lesion(s), anus (eg, condyloma, papilloma, molluscum contagiosum, herpetic vesicle), simple; electrodesiccation

    This is the best code to be used as per your documentaion given. I also agree.
