Thread: Excision of inside buccal mucous. Help!

  1. #1

    Cool Excision of inside buccal mucous & other. Help!

    AAPC: Back to School
    1. My Doctor does excision of inside right buccal mucous of mouth 0.4 x 0.4 cm and dx is skin neoplasm. What is the CPT for the procedure?

    2. When the doctor does punch biopsy of skin, do you consider cpt code
    11100, or is there another? Sometimes the word Punch throws me off,
    I'm not sure if I should only look under biopsy under integumentry.

    3. Frenulectomy of penis, the doctor did only a slit at the ventral of penis
    with Frenoplasty? Does anyone know the cpt codes? I think
    Frenulectomy is not the wright word, I think it should be
    " Frenulotomy CPT 54164" I'm not sure about cpt code for
    Frenoplasty is under other in cpt book in lip section. PLEASE HELP!
