Please advise which CPT code would best represent a diagnostic lap to retrieve a foreign object (IUD). X-Rays show IUD is located in the upper right pelvis. Would the correct code be 49329, as it is a laparoscopic procedure, or 49402? Thank you.

Hi,

The appropriate code for laparoscopic IUD removal would be 49329.
