    Default Please post op note

    For an accruate response to surgical coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative / procedure note. Additionally, for some questions you will get a more expert advice by posting the the specialty forum (e.g. Orthopaedics or OB/GYN).

    Hope that helps.
