Thread: Laparoscopic Burch urethropexy

  1. #1

    Question Laparoscopic Burch urethropexy

    Can anyone help me with a code? A TLH was performed and then followed by a laparoscopic Burch urethropexy? Its the Burch that Im having trouble with. There are open Burch codes, or Burch with a TAH but not with a TLH.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Anyone have an update on this topic, if mesh was used during a laparoscopic burch urethopexy, is it still 51990?

    For a urethropexy with a hysterectomy, see 58152 or 58267.

    This is in the description of code 51840 on Encoderpro.

    Default Burch procedure

    If this was done Laparoscopically as well you can use the 51990, but if they used a sling then I would use the 51992.
    There is not an additional code for mesh unless it is for the pelvic floor and done by vaginal approach.
