sorry I meant the CPT I was giving the DX

The series of CPT codes involved are: 45110, 45111, 45112, 45119, 45121, and Laparoscopic:45395 & 45397

As you didn't mention the details, I think it will be probably 45110(Proctectomy; complete, combined abdominoperineal, with colostomy )

But, you need to pick the code as per documentation of detailed report.

45110 is what I went with based on the OP note
