Think coding and documenting endoscopic sinus surgery is pretty straight-forward? Think again.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is the bread-and-butter surgery for most otolaryngology practices.

Don't let improper coding cheat your otolaryngology practice out of well-deserved reimbursement -- join our expert speaker Barbara Cobuzzi for this informative and eye-opening 90-minute audio seminar to get the proven advice that will get you the right payments.
