Does the doctor get paid for the discontinued services (47562)?

Agreed, the laparoscopic procedure is a component of the open procedure and can't be coded separately. 47562 bundles to 47605 and this cannot be bypassed with any modifier. But without the operative report, there's no way to confirm the coding here.
