THD Hemorrhoidectomy

Maria Posted Tue 19th of August, 2014 16:19:02 PM

What codes are appropriate for hemorrhoid treatment using the THD technique? Would u/s guidance be reported separately? Thank you.

Thanks for your question. See 46945; Hemorrhoidectomy, internal, by ligation other than rubber band; single hemorrhoid column/group and 46946; Hemorrhoidectomy, internal, by ligation other than rubber band; 2 or more hemorrhoid columns/groups. You can also code 76998; if ultrasound guidance was used. Hope this helps.

A Category III code was just brought to my attention: 0249T
This appears to cover all elements of the THD technique. Thank you.
