Thread: Right Upper Lobectomy

  1. #1

    Default Right Upper Lobectomy

    I am a student and am looking for clarification to what CPT code 32480 - Removal of lung, other than pneumonectomy; single lobe (lobectomy) Does this mean that only one lobe was removed or that the entire lung was removed ?

    Default

    A portion of the lung is removed in a lobectomy & an entire lung is removed in a pneumonectomy,
