Looking for a CPT code to best define a robotic assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty with stone abstraction performed by a Urologist. I find CPT 50544, but I am not sure that that includes the stone abstraction or the robotic assist. Can anyone advise on alternative CPT's for this procedure

use the S2900 for the robotic assist after listing the primary procedure..pretty sure no one will pay on it..but that would be the code

You may want to check with the robotic manufacturer. They many times have some coding guidance to help providers. You will want to validate what they say with your current resources though. This can be really valuable information sometimes. Occasionally I have found some to be outdated, so check your current books also. Unfortunately for many procedures, right now you just code the regular procedure, you get nothing else for the robotic use. Just FYI, there are robotic codes now in the inpatient setting.
