    Default Oophorectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    We had a patient that had a laparoscopic right oophorectomy and a laparoscopic removal of pelvic mass. I am uncertain if the correct coding for these 2 procedures is 58660 and 58661, or should it just be 58670-22? Thanks for any help!

    Default laparoscopy


    I think you would use 58661 for the oophorectomy. What kind of pelvic mass?

    I'd use 58661 for the oophorectomy. 58662 may be your code for the mass excision. Look at the description and see if that fits. Thanks.

    Look at 58545-58546, was the mass a fibroid mass?
