Laparoscopic retroperitoneal biopsy

E. maria Posted Mon 28th of December, 2015 14:16:50 PM

What would be the appropriate CPT code for laparoscopic lysis of adhesions (25 minuntes) retroperitoneal biopsy, and mesenteric biopsy. I was thinking 49329 because most of the surgical time was the exploration and biopsies. Please advice

As per your question 49329(Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, abdomen, peritoneum and omentum) is appropriate for this for the scenario.
