My doc performed a posterior and enterocele repair together no anterior repair. 57265 includes anterior repair. What would I use?

There is no separate code for this procedure posterior colporrhphy with enterocele repair. You can use modifier -52 (Reduce service) with CPT 57265 to code this service.
Make sure to attach operative report with the claim form to justify the procedure and to eliminate the risk of denial.
