Need help with CPT and ICD for sx

  1. Default Need help with CPT and ICD for sx
    Medical Coding Books
    One of our docs did left knee arthroscopy with medial menisectomy, plica resection and open excision of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. I can't find a CPT code for the excision. He has the diagnosis as neuroma of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve and I'm not sure of the ICD-9 code for that either.

  2. Smile Excision of neuroma of infrapatellar branch of saphenous nerve
    Hi Mistyq:

    I would code the excision with CPT 64784 and ICD-9: 215.3.
