Cpt coding - SURGERY INVOLVING

  1. Default Cpt coding - SURGERY INVOLVING
    Medical Coding Books
    PATIENT HAD A BILATERIAL STRABISMUS SURGERY INVOLVING THE MEDIAL AND LATERIAL RECTUS MUSCLES. THE SURGEON EXPLORED AND REPAIRED A DETACHED EXTRAOCULAR MUSCLE IN THE RIGHT EYE AND PLACED BILATERIAL POSTERIOR FIXATION SURTURES WITH MUSCLES RECESSION.

    I CODED 67312-50, 67340-RT, 67334-50, BUT ANOTHER CODER CODED THIS CASE AS 67312-50, 67340-RT AND 67335-50. I am confused to why the other coder will use 67335.

    Can you tell me your thoughts on this case?

    Thanks
