    How do you find under Index (CPT book) for procedure " Laparoscopic urethral suspension" for female patient (Diagnosis: stress incontinence)?

    Thank you

    Your question really isn't clear. Do you need the code for lap ureth sus?

    No. I have the code but I could not find in CPT index.

    But now I knew how to look it up. I have to look under "laparoscopy" "suspension"

    Thanks for your reply
