  1. Unhappy What is Davinci?
    Medical Coding Books
    Our Doctor's are doing a procedure for a Davinci not sure what it is.
    I am using the CPT code for Cystectomy 58925 since there is no other code
    for it. Would this be correct the pt has an ovarian cyst that is going to be removed?

    Davinci is the name of the robot used for robotic laparoscopic surgeries.
    You would code the case as a laparoscopic case.
