    Wink Coding removal of right paratubal cyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need help with coding the following:
    Cervical dilation. Placement of humi cath.
    Laparoscopy lysis of multiple thick pelvic adhesions
    Removal of right paratubal cyst
    I coded this as 57800 and 58662-22
    Is this correct?

    You would only code the actual removal of the cyst, and I believe it is somewhere in the 4000 series.
