Diagnosis Code

I do a lot of reconstruction procedures after the Mohs surgeon has removed the skin cancer. I am not removing cancer so it doesn’t seem right to use a cancer diagnosis code. But what diagnosis code should I use?


Nasal Sinal Displacement Therapy

After bilateral endoscopic sinus surgery is completed, my doctor documents “the patient then underwent bilateral nasal sinal displacement therapy and all bloody secretions and mucoid secretions were clear.” He wants to bill 30210-50 (Displacement therapy (Proetz type)) in addition to the endoscopic sinus surgery codes. Is that acceptable?
