My surgeon wants to bill 30140 in the office for using a turbinator wandn inserted into inferior turbinates and states submucous resection performed. It does stab incision into anterior aspect of inferior turbinate. Based on this documentation it does not appear to be the surgery described by 30401.
What would be the best code to use.Unlisted?

CPT Code 30140 is appropriate for sub mucous resection of inferior turbinates.
