    Default Resection of ovarian endometrioma

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a salpingo-oophorectomy is performed the same time as a resection of an ovarian endometrioma, would you code 49202 or 58720?

    Whether the primary intended surgery would have been Endometrioma which is a deceased status or the S.O, whatever, the S.O is a mandatory surgery to avoid future complications but not incidental. Though it is separate procedure, it is a distinct procedure and merits to be reported.
    Both are needed surgeries.
    I would like to assign 4920x (203-205) depending upon the size of the tumor, and,
    58720- 59
    I hope this helps
