I was thinking 57420 56810 but 56810 is bundled. This is the revision part of surgery . The area of the suture granuloma, which was the site of her pain in the office, was identified and injected submucosally using the lidocaine-Marcaine mixture previously described. The knife was used to create a diamond-shaped incision incorporating that area as well as the interrupted hymen. The mucosa was removed using the knife. 4-0 Vicryl was then used to reapproximate the mucosal edges in a fashion similar to that of a standard perineal repair although not at the midline. Care was taken to bury knots or place them inside the hymen. This repair seemed to have corrected the previously noted defects

These codes are not bundled. They can be billed with each other. CPT code 56810 is the correct code for repair of perineum (granuloma).
