Urology performed 51595, 53210 and our doc performed
Radical hysterectomy, anterior vaginectomy with vaginal reconstruction. Nothing was done with the pelvic lymph nodes by Ob/Gyn doc.
Which cpt should I use to code our portion?

Depending upon documentation, ob/gyn doc. should bill 58210 with modifier 52 as procedure is partially reduced.

what should we do about the fact 58210 is bundled with the urology doc codes?

Since CPT code 58210 is bundled with urology code 51595. Append modifier 59 ( Distinct Procedural Service ) with CPT code 58210 to rule out bundling.
