58563 with endocervical and endometrial curretage

  1. Default 58563 with endocervical and endometrial curretage

    I am in need of help to determine if CPT 58563 includes endocervical and endometrial curettage? if not what code can you use for the curettage? can anyone answer this question, I am having a hard time determining if it is or isn't. Thanks in advance!

    Take a look at codes:

    57505 ( Endocervical curettage)

    58356 (Endometrial cryoablation with ultrasonic guidance, including endometrial currettage, when performed).

    I would not use code 58563 because that is Dilation and Curettage, if your physician only stated curettage.

    I would need to see the details of the op report before I would advise you on which codes to use.
