He degloved it to localize the point of the fracture.
It is part of the repair and cannot be billed
separately.

Hi Sandra,

I'm leaning towards the 54440-Plastic operation of penis for injury. It
simply states a physician repairs an injury of th epenis using one or more
plastic surgery techniques. The repair may require skin grafts, tisssue
grafts, urethral repair, extensive debridement, microsurgical repairs, or
any combination. The Uro Coding Companion also lists ICD-9 959.13-Fracture
of corpus cavernosum penis as a possible dx billable with this code.
Again, just my thought.

CYSTO. THANKS

What all was done on the patient? Just the degloving or some type of repair
of the fracture?
