    SPARC Procedure for Treating Urinary Stress Incontinence
    This procedure has been patented by Dr. David Staskin and employs the SupraPubic insertion of ARCed needles (hence SPARC) for the surgical implantation of an adjustable sling that serves to support the urethra..

    I THINK THE ABOVE EXPLAINS HOW SHOULD WE SELECT THE CODE.
    it is a procedure of sling open operation performed to support the urethra/ urinary system and not for supporting the uterus.
    So we would go for 57288..
    Thank you.
