Urology/Prostate calcification

Cherie Posted Thu 04th of August, 2016 09:51:46 AM
"There were calcifications on the surface of the prostate. I did take a resectoscope and superficially scrape off and resect 3mm sections at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions. There was increased vascularity of the prostate which was cauterized extensively. Also, there were calcifications scattered through out the bladder. These were removed with the cystoscope through suctioning. Dr wants to code 52601 and 52310. Please advise, not sure we agree.

Hi, Code 52310 is bundled into code 52601. Code 52310 cannot be billed with 52601.

Correct, but is 52601 appropriate in this situation.

Any thoughts on this yet? Thank you

HI, CPT code 52601 is appropriate for the scenario.
