Thread: Laparoscopy with excision of lt.ovarian dermoid

    Default Laparoscopy with excision of lt.ovarian dermoid

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm trying to help code this and I can't seem to find a correct code. 58925 is not laparoscopic and none of the laparoscopic codes seem to fit.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I would also use 58662

    Bless you!!

    It was excised and removed, not destroyed. Do you feel that this still fits?

    I would still use 58662 because CPT code states Fulguration or Excision by any method- Trocars deliver surgical instruments (scissors, electrocautery tools, etc.)

    Thank you so much for all your help.
