    Without seeing the OP note, I would say yes, but! If the lysis of adhesions was extensive, took more time than usual, caused more use of instruments etc. then I would add the 22 modifier. However, I have only seen this a couple of times where the 22 modifier was needed. Mostly the adhesions were lysed to get to the adnexa for removal. In that case, I wouldn't code it. This is something that you will have to determine from the OP report and the documentation by the surgeon.
    Anyone else?

    I could not have said it any better myself. I totally agree.
