Which is the correct CPT code for exploratory laparotomy with small bowel and cecal resection with primary anastomosis 44120 or 44160? for ischemic small bowel

SuperCoder Posted 5 Year(s) ago

Code 44160 (colectomy with removal of terminal ileum and ileocolostomy) should be used when the physician removes a segment of the colon and terminal ileum and performs an anastomosis between the remaining ileum and colon.
