    Default Hysterectomy and Cautery

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code this? Diagnosis: uterine myoma, menorrahgia, pelvic pressure and endometriosis of right ovary. Procedure: Abdominal Hysterectomy and Cautery Endometriosis.

    Thanks in advance for the help because I am really stumped.

    Uterine Myoma, menorrhagia, and endometriosis of the ovary (617.1) are the main diagnoses.
    CPT : Hysterectomy code and 49203 for endometrioma destruction be it pelvic or ovarian.
    If ovarian cyst opened and drainage done look for Gyn ovarain se.ction code
