    Patient with unicornuate uterus, history of horn removal and retained products.
    Would love to do D&C under ultrasonic guidance, but cannot find the appropriate D&C for it.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Hi Heather,
    I suggest using 76998 (Ultrasonic guidance, intraoperative). You may need to attach modifier 59 to this code if required by your payer.
