    I need help with a code please:

    Robot assisted lap pelvic lymph node dissection (extended including external iliac, internal iliac, obturator, common iliac lymph node chain)

    The doc selected 38571. Does this include all of these nodes?

    Yes, CPT 38571 is for laparoscopy, surgical; with bilateral total pelvic lymphadenectomy. So all those nodes are included.
