    Default 58660 vs 49320

    AAPC: Back to School
    hello all,

    Diagnostic laparoscopy and clipping of adhesion
    DX: Pelvic pain

    Part of op note:

    There was noted that there was sort of like a band adhesion or a fold of peritoneum by the bladder which was just incised to see if this would help her with her pain.


    58660 or 49320

    Hi, regarding whether to use 49320 vs 58660. i would not use 49320 because that is just a diagnostic scope and your doc did perform some surgical procedure. 58660 looks like it involves the tubes and ovaries. i would be inclined to use either that code or 58662.

    addendum: i did some further research and the 58660 seems appropriate.
