E. maria Posted Tue 19th of May, 2015 16:03:10 PM

What is the correct CPT code for excision of anal polyp? Anoscopy was undertaken pt was found to have a 1.5 cm long polypoid lesion arising in the anal canal just external to the dentate line and this was excised with cautery.

If the procedure done through Anoscopy. Use the appropriate CPT code from 46610-46615, on the basis of appropriate technique of excision.
If done as an open procedure, use CPT code 46910 or 46922.
