    Does anyone know what CPT would be used for OB-GYN who is doing a defibulation of a female circumcision? I'm thinking 56800 or 56810.

    Those do look like the best options, but if possible I would have the OB/Gyn read the description of each procedure and tell you which one it is closer to in their opinion.
