    Can anyone tell what they would use to code a reduction of peri-umbilical hernia at the bedside. I don't see a specific code to support what was done and I'm thinking it's included in the E&M code. What do others think?

    If all the physician did was manually reduce it at the bedside then yes it would just be included in the e&m code.
