Excision of Lipoma of the Hip. How do I code this? What is the procedure code for this?

How do you code an excision of lipoma of the hip?. Size is 9x7cm and my doctor documented it as very deep and is intramuscular. The pathology came back as final diagnosis of lipoma. Please help.


My Reply:

Hi, please take a look at 27043-27045. These series of codes has 90 days global as well.

I hope this helps.
