    Default 57461 vs. 57522?


    Is the use of a colposcope the only difference between these codes?

    57461--Colposcopy with loop electrode conization of the cervix (0 day global)
    57522--Conization of cervix, with/without fulguration, with/without D&C, with/without repair; loop electrode excision (90 day global)

    My doctor is telling me that the colp with loop electrode conization is the same thing as the conization (without fulguration, without D&C, without repair), as far as the procedure goes. Is it?

    Thanks!!

    Yes they are the same except that 57461 includes the colposcope.
