Laparoscopy and robotics have become a popular surgical technology for many urological and urogynecological surgical procedures. In many instances, this technology has replaced open surgery. There are many new CPT codes used for billing these services. Unfortunately, many of these frequently performed laparoscopic/robotic procedures do not have specific procedural CPT codes.

Ferragamo MD, FACS, will review the general concepts for coding these services and will provide you with specific tools, tips, and the knowledge to properly code and bill laparoscopic/robotic procedures. Michael will address and focus on specific coding for various clinical scenarios, to clarify and teach these principles of coding to ensure correct and entitled payments of all laparoscopic/robotic procedures.
