PHYSICIAN DID AN EXTENSIVE SCROTAL AND LEFT GROIN DEBRIDEMENT FOR NECROTIZING FASCITIS (ENTIRE SCROTUM WAS REMOVED AND LEFT GROIN AREA)HOW WOULD I CODE THIS?
12 DAYS LATER PHYSICIAN DOES A WOUND DEBRIDEMENT AND CREATION OF BILATERAL TESTICULAR THIGH POUCHES, WOUND VAC APPLIED. HOW WOULD I CODE THIS AND DOES IT NEED MODIFIERS?

For the procedure performed on sacrotum please provide more information regarding physician worked on testis also, if so then Orchiectomy 54520-54522 code range would be appropriate.
Cpt code 11004 is more appropriate code for wound debridement with modifier 58.
