OUR DR DID REPEAT LASER VAPORIZATION OF PROSTATE ON A PATIENT (FIRST TIME 2011)--IS THIS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME PROCEDURE LIKE 52601?
IF YES, WHAT CODE DO WE USE? 52630?

CPT 52648 is can be coded for the above mentioned procedure (repeat laser vaporisation). Also, the procedure is not done in the global period (90 days), then modifier is not appended.
Hope this Helps.
