Hi Guest!

There is not a standard modifier i'm aware of to use with 40810 (Excision of lesion of mucosa and submucosa, vestibule of mouth; without repair)

You of course can use a modifier to indicate a special circumstance to the procedure, such as:

Modifier 22 (increased procedural services)
Modifier 51 (multiple surgeries/procedures)
Modifier 52 (reduced services)


Hope this helps!
