DR DID AN EXCISION OF TOT MESH (57295) WITH URETHRAL REPAIR WITH ACEL- WHAT CPT CODE WOULD I USE FOR THE URETHRAL REPAIR WITH ACEL? DIAGNOSIS IS UTI (N39.0)AND BLADDER HYPERTONICITY (N32.81).

Seeing the above code, procedure is being performed on female patient. The most appropriate code for urethral repair will be 53430 (Urethroplasty, reconstruction of female urethra). You may also need to check with details of your operative report to match the code before billing. Feel free to ask for any further assistance.
