I have a question regarding a hysterectomy. If a physician performs a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic and periaortic lymphadenectomy...would you code 58150 and 38562 or 58210 for radical hyst. The problem I am having in that a radical hysterectomy involves removing part of the vagina and with this procedure the physican did not remove any of the vagina during the hysterectomy. Please help!! Any advice is greatly apprectiated.
your procedure is total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic and periaortic lymphadenectomy. incase your provider performs TAH with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic and periaortic lymphadenectomy. then the right code would be 58951 it includes entire procedure.
hope it helps
