    I would use 58661 - this includes the diagnostic lap. use the 617.x for the endometriosis.

    If via the laparoscopy then 58662, if you have Encoder Pro check this code on their software. I think it reads fulguration or excision of lesions of the ovary, pelvic visera or peritoneal surface , any method.

    I think that the information you provided from is way to vague to suggest any CPT codes. However I would definetely not go with the first suggestion as that doesn't even come close to what you described.

    Default 58662

    I agree with Ellie, Carol, and Garcia use code 58662 it will include the dx lap. ICD-9 code of 617.X.

    I would use 58662 with the DX 617.__ for whatever site the endometriosis is in.. 58356 is what we use for a cryoablation...Totally different..
