Thread: Lap removal of paratubal cyst

    Default Lap removal of paratubal cyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've done a search on paratubal cysts and their removal and I'm still not quite finding an answer.
    Doctor did a Laparoscopy w/catuery of endometriosis and removal of paratubal cyst from both right and left fallopian tubes.

    Can I please get assistance on how to find the codes for this? Any help is appreciated.

    I believe the correct code is 58662 Laparoscopy, surgical; with fulguration or excision of lesions of the ovary, pelvic viscera, or peritoneal surface by any method. And it does link with the code for the cyst, 620.8. The fallopian tubes would be included in the term "pelvic viscera".
