    Hey coding experts!!!

    Please help!!!

    Patient had THR in June and then developed post-op hematoma. July 1st doctor performs an irrigation and debridement with liner exchange. Is that considered a revision? Any ideas how to code this??

    Thank you so very much!!

    yes revision w/52 modifier but a 52 mod could be left off if the doc documents that the liner removal/exchange was above & beyond the usual work. My docs usually feel that way and I always ask so they can have the 'final' say..
