    Did the surgeon perforate the uterus during the procedure- and repaired it? Where was the mole removed from? You may have up to 3 codes. Need more info.

    when they placed the IUD, it moved and perforated the uterus. They then had to perform surgery on the pt Lap. Then the mole was removed from her abdominal wall?

    you would use 58578 (unlisted lap of uterus since there is no specific lap repair of perforated uterus) attach notes to the claim-- and mole removal will depend on size- look in the codes that start with 11400.
