    Don't know if it is right without seeing the note or having some detail about what it is you are trying to code.

    Default Need Operative / Procedure Note
    For an accurate response to surgical coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative / procedure note.

    That being said, you cannot use LT/RT on the integumentary system codes - EXCEPT for those dealing with the breasts. Skin doesn't have laterality.

    Hope that helps.
