    Default CPT for lap excision of retroperitoneal sarcoma

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doc wants to do a lap excision of retroperitoneal sarcoma and I can't find a code. If anyone happens to know the CPT code for this I'd be grateful for the help.

    My thought is to use 49329 and compare to 49203 to 49205 depending on the size of the tumor.
