    Question Biopsy during Hysterectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code for a sigmoid colon biopsy done at the time of an abdominal hysterectomy?

    Do you need the cpt codes for this or icd-9? Here is the cpt codes you would use. abdominal hysterectomy is 58150, 45305 with modifier 51 for sigmoid colon biopsy. You are doing two procedures at same time of service.
