Would 59510 mod 22 be sufficent to code? The op report can be sent to show the additional work of the fibroids removed. Or is there another code that should be used?

The c-section and the myomectomy are not bundled so the use of a modifier 22 on code 59510 would not be necessary to get paid. You would bill either 58140 Myomectomy, excision of fibroid tumor(s) of uterus, 1 to 4 intramural myoma(s) with total weight of 250 g or less and/or removal of surface myomas; abdominal approach) or 58146 (Myomectomy, excision of fibroid tumor(s) of uterus, 5 or more intramural myomas and/or intramural myomas with total weight greater than 250 g, abdominal approach) as a secondary code with a modifier -51.
