What would the correct CPT code assignment be for this scenario?
A male patient, 54 years of age, comes in on May 3, 2014 for a scheduled transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). The patient had an initial TURP back in August 2012 but is still experiencing difficulty voiding.
- A. 52601
- B. 52648
- C. 52630
- D. 52450
Answer: C. 52630
Rationale; The patient had a TURP previously done, therefore the code 52630 transurethral resection; residual or regrowth of obstructive prostate tissue including control of post op bleeding, complete would be assigned for the repeat TURP.
