    Registration sheet says.

    OPS OVARIAN CYSTECTIOMY/LAPARASCOPIC

    DR. WRITING UNDERNEATH SAYS

    EXP-LAP- & BSO.

    DX'S- PELVIC PAIN/ OVARIAN CYSTS.

    IS THIS CORRECT 58925.


    HOW WOULD YOU GO ABOUT CODING THIS.

    From the information you have given, I would say that this is an Exploratory Lap with Bilateral Salpingo oopherectomy. From what I see, CPT 58720 would be the correct code based on what your doctor has written. Not sure why the op note would say one thing and the doctor would write in another. I would ask him what he actually did.

    Daniel,

    Call the hospital and request the operative notes. Code directly from those. That's your best and most appropriate avenue and may save you some costly legal fee's if coding only from a registration sheet.
