Coding For Placement Of A Cervical Stitch

Physicians at our practice are placing a stitch and dilating the cervix after egg retrievals for those patients that have cervical stenosis. Would you bill that in addition to the egg retrieval procedure and bill as unlisted? Here is an example of how it is documented. Thank you for your help! “2-0 Vicryl stitch placed on anterior lip of cervix and cervix dilated with Pratt dilators. Speculum was removed.”
