Partial IUD Removal

I'm expecting push back when I provide a response to a doctor in our practice. I wanted to get the opinion of someone more experienced then myself.

Scenario -
Last month, patient came in for an IUD removal. Only a portion of the IUD was removed as an arm was lodged in the uterus.

I would code this as a filed IUD removal, 58301-53

At a later date the patient came in and the arm was removed via hysteroscopy.

I would code this as 58562.

The doctor wanted to use 58301-53 and then 58301 for the second visit. What is the correct coding for this scenario?

I would code it as 58301 -52 since the procedure was partially completed. then code the 58562. since the second procedure was performed via the hysteroscopy.

Yes I agree 58301-52 and 58562. it's a modifier 52, not 53. reduced service since the provider could not remove all of the iud
