EndometriosisA summary of common codes for Endometriosis compiled by the ASRM Coding Committee. Endometriosis is a particularly difficult field for coding owing to extensive variability in symptoms, severity, and location. Severe disease can result in subspecialty support from gynecologic oncology, urology, general or colorectal surgery, and even cardiothoracic surgery in the case of diaphragmatic endometriosis. Though there are exceptional reproductive surgeons capable of procedures normally reserved for other fields, this summary will focus on conditions and procedures that can be performed by the majority of REI’s and OB/GYN’s.
