DUODENOJENUNOSTOMY

E. maria Posted Thu 26th of March, 2015 19:18:21 PM

Can you please tell me what is the correct CPT code for laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy?

The procedure was done laproscopically so you would need to code CPT 43644.
Thanks

This is not for gastric bypass for obesity. Patient has a small bowel obstruction due to superior mesenteric artery syndrome

Then you would need to bill 44238 "Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, intestine (except rectum)" as there is no specific code for the procedure performed.
