    Default Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    What would you code for a laparoscopic excision of a cyst on the ovary, when he is removing cyst wall only, not the ovary?
    Please respond ASAP.
    Thank you for your time,

    Removing the cyst wall is the excision of the lesion(cyst) / and is called cystectomy.
    Thank you
