should I append modifier 52 to the attempted spermatocelectomy?

Nancy Posted Tue 14th of July, 2015 10:46:29 AM

The patient was taken to the operating room today for attempted right spermatocelectomy ultimately required right simple orchiectomy performed at level of external ring.

Well, when spermatocelectomy is not performed, so code only for orchiectomy only. Need not to bill modifier 52. Hope it helps!
