Thread: Revision of Uterine Scar

  1. #1

    Default Revision of Uterine Scar

    Promo: Code Books
    Patient has had pelvic/abdominal pain for some time. Was seen in the office and had sonogram that showed "something" on her uterus. She has had a previous c-section several years ago. A diagnostic laparoscopy was scheduled and performed. Findings: uterine scar. The surgeon revised the scar on the uterus (not the abdomen). How should this be coded? All I'm finding is unlisted procedure. Please help!
    Thanks!
