It depends on your situation, this one that I read from the Advance Healthcare website and it's from Joyce R. Shearry, RHIA, CCS. I hope it help.
"58120 and 58555-59 would only be appropriate if the hysteroscope 58555 was performed during another procedure, not the same operative episode (e.g., Hysteroscope performed 8 a.m. patient returns at 3 p.m. with same complaint and a D&C is performed). Modifier -59 indicates the procedure code to which it is appended is distinct or independent from other services performed on the same day."
