    sorry I meant the CPT I was giving the DX

  4. SuperCoder Posted 5 Year(s) ago

    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
