I code for Gyn/Onc surgeons and I am wondering if anyone knows the required documentation in order to report 58210/58548 vs 58150/58572 with 38572.
Is it simply the total bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy and para aortic node sampling done during the hysterectomy that makes the procedure radical or do more structures need to be removed than a normal TAHBSO as well as the bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy and para aortic node sampling?
This is confusing me on what documentation needs to be there in order to report a radical hysterectomy.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
