    Default Help please ear repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help I am new to ear repair. One of my General Surgeons had to replant a patient's ear he was in a car accident. My surgeon did an extensive repair to replant the ear. Is there a code for this? The repair codes I came across in the Auditory section do not seem right. So please any assistance would be helpful.
    Thank you
