Default HELP!!! Botox injection for anal fissure

Our surgeon injected botox in an anal fissure and we need to find a CPT code. 64612 is the code for facial but can't find one for the bottom. Can anyone help?

thank you

I was looking into this about a month ago for our dr. What I came up with was 46505 (Chemodenervation of internal anal sphincter). You also need to code the Botox (J code). I am hoping that we can get some other input to verify that this info is correct.

This policy from one of the major carriers might help point you in the right direction.
