How do I code for repair of wound dehiscence with deep abscess status post ACDF (anterior cervical discectomy, decompression and fusion)? I looked at 22010 but that’s for a posterior procedure.
Take a look at 21501 (Incision and drainage, deep abscess or hematoma, soft tissues of neck or thorax) to see if it meets your needs.
