Need CPT® code for endscopic endonasal pituitary hemmorrhage
Patient had CPT® 62165 done the day before.. Then patient had hemmorrhage in same area and on the next day the surgeon removed blood clots from same area- I coded 62165-52, but they still denied. Can anyone help me find a better code? The surgeon states this was a endoscopic endonasal transphenoidal approach to evacuation of a pituitary hemmorrhage.
please and thank you!!!
