Hi,

You can report 58558-52( because biopsy was not done) , 58661-LT, 58662-RT
When your payer bundles 58661 and 58662 and you know the surgery is in two different places, you would tack on modifier 59 (Distinct procedural service) to the code the payer is bundling.

Diagnosis for Ovarian endometriosis - N80.1

Thanks
