Patient has 2 incisional hernias one at the edge of the mesh from previous incisional hernia repair in right upper quadrant and then another site just below the umbilicus to the left.
The doctor repaird the two hernias without mesh...

The question is...

How do you code two recurrent incisional hernias?
49565 is the code I have chosen..
