    Default Thoracotomy with wedge resection x2
    Medical Coding Books
    Would you code this as just the 32500 wedge resection, single or multiple? Or, would you also bill the thoracotomy? or is that included in the wedge?

    Thanks,

    The thoractomy is included in the open wedge resection. I would just bill 32500.
