Hi Dana,

There is no exact code that can replace CPT 58957 with laproscopically performed procedure. However, the closest one will be CPT 58662 depending on the documentation. If it does not match the procedure performed, then we will go for 58679 (unlisted laparoscopy procedure, oviduct, ovary). Thank you.
