Bilateral Broad Ligament Repair

    My physician was called in to repair a bilateral broad ligament laceration that another OB/GYN did during a C-Section. I CAN NOT find a CPT code. Do I have to bill this with a Unlisted Procedure Code??

    Well if your provider reopened the incision you could use 49002 for Reopening of recent Laparotomy

    No he did not re-open. It was done during the time the patient was open for the C-section.
