Understanding Partial Hysterectomy ICD 10 Coding
Partial hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of the uterus. It is a common gynecological procedure that is performed to treat various conditions, such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse. It is a less invasive alternative to a total hysterectomy, which removes the entire uterus.
What is ICD 10 Coding?
ICD 10 coding is a system used by healthcare providers to classify and report medical diagnoses and procedures. It is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), which is maintained by the World Health Organization (WHO). ICD 10 coding is used to assign a code to each diagnosis and procedure, which is then used for billing and data collection purposes.
Partial Hysterectomy ICD 10 Coding
The ICD 10 code for partial hysterectomy is O90.6. This code is used to describe the procedure of removing part of the uterus, typically the fundus and/or the cervix. The code is also used to describe any associated procedures that may be performed during the partial hysterectomy, such as a salpingo-oophorectomy (removal of the fallopian tubes and ovaries).
What Other Codes Are Used in Conjunction with O90.6?
In addition to O90.6, other codes may be used in conjunction with a partial hysterectomy. These codes are used to describe the reason for the partial hysterectomy, such as the diagnosis code for the underlying condition. Common diagnosis codes used in conjunction with O90.6 include N80 (endometriosis), N80.1 (uterine fibroids), and N81.2 (pelvic organ prolapse).
What is the Difference Between O90.6 and O90.7?
O90.6 is used to describe a partial hysterectomy, while O90.7 is used to describe a total hysterectomy. O90.7 is used to describe the removal of the entire uterus, including the fundus and cervix, as well as the fallopian tubes and ovaries. O90.7 is a more invasive procedure than O90.6, and is typically used to treat more severe conditions.
Partial hysterectomy ICD 10 coding is used to accurately describe the procedure and any associated procedures that may be performed. The code O90.6 is used to describe the procedure of removing part of the uterus, while other codes are used to describe the reason for the procedure. It is important for healthcare providers to use the correct codes when coding for partial hysterectomy in order to ensure accurate billing and data collection.
