    Default HELP!!! Botox injection for anal fissure

    Our surgeon injected botox in an anal fissure and we need to find a CPT code. 64612 is the code for facial but can't find one for the bottom. Can anyone help?

    thank you

    I was looking into this about a month ago for our dr. What I came up with was 46505 (Chemodenervation of internal anal sphincter). You also need to code the Botox (J code). I am hoping that we can get some other input to verify that this info is correct.
