    Default Lap BSO/Adhesions w/Vag Hyster

    AAPC: Back to School
    MD did extensive laparoscopic lysis of adhesions with eventual BSO followed by vaginal hysterectomy. Total time 6hrs.
    Is this just 58552/22, or would it be appropriate to code 58660 & 58262 with a 59? It seems as though that would more specifically indicate the extensive lysis, but I don't know if/when those pieces of the procedure should be split.

    Well for your CPT 58262 is vaginal approach and 58552 is laparoscopy approach. Those are 2 completely different vaginal hyst approaches. LOA will be secondary and yes you can add 22 for extensive. Probably better to send claim w/ op report. good luck
