pt is 36 wks pregnant and had her cervical cerclage removed with no anesthesia in the hospital due to the fact that the cerclage placement was difficult and the patient is obese. What is the correct cpt code for that? I only see one that includes anesthesia. Thank You!

Cerclage removal without anesthesia is not a codeable service per ACOG and CPT. It would be included in either the ob global service in that case.
