Thanks for your query,
As per my understanding, the correct for this scenario would be CPT 58661 (laparoscopic right RSO and left sulpingectomy) and 44979 (Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, appendix) for laparoscopic appendectomy.
To code CPT code 44970 (laparoscopy, surgical, appendectomy) for this procedure to qualify, an exploratory laparoscopy must have been performed on a patient who presented with abdominal pain and whose appendix was removed after ruling out gynecologic conditions.
