    I'm brand new to ENT coding after many years in OB-GYN. Can anyone help me w/ coding this procedure?

    "Exploration of the neck w/ excision of 4 parathyroid glands, bilateral central compartment neck dissections w/ bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve dissections, partial mediastinal dissection of the left, reimplantation of a parathyroid to the right forearm and excisional biopsy of a mass of the left thyroid lobe."

    Diagnosis is: Tertiary hyperparathyroidism

    Any help appreciated!

    Hi Liz:

    ENT is not my forte, but look at 60500, 60512 and 60200.
