Hi,

 

Thanks for the patience.

 

As per the limited documentation code 45560 Repair of rectocele (separate procedure) and code 57270 Repair of enterocele, abdominal approach (separate procedure). If the enterocele repair is done through vaginal approach then code Repair of enterocele, vaginal approach (separate procedure). Modifier 59 should be appended with code 45560 and 57268.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks.
