    Default help with removal of cervix procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having a problem finding a code for a "laparoscopic removal of cervix". Has anyone seen this one?
    Thank you!

    With the info provided, I could only think of 58578-unlisted laparoscopy procedure, on the uterus, (the cervix being an inherent component of the uterus - the uterus has two parts- the body and the cervix of the uterus).
    Well, your lap.cervicectomy was done for a cervical stump or only on cervix leaving the body of the uterus intact for a purpose, wahtever, this code 58578 would suffice.
    I hope this helps.
