    Default TVT and Hysterectomy

    There is a bundled coding for Hysterectomy and Colpourethroystopexy- 58152. If done by the same surgeon).
    When it is done by two different Surgeons of the two primary procedures and the primary surgeon of TVT or Burch, goes to assist hysterectomy ….
    From two different Specialties, one for Hysterectomy and one for Colpourethrocystopexy, I would place the code in the sequencial order: 58150-80, 58152 ( considering total abdominal Hysterectomy with colpourethrocystopexy ( eg Marshall Marshetti Krantz ,Burch since there is no separate listing for TVT in the CPT code with the code number 58152).

    However Bill2Doc, we would get an expert openion on this.
    Thank you
