What is the correct CPT code for laparoscopic assisted ileocecal resection? The distal ileum was mobilized taking down the lateral reflection extending up to the mid cecum area. The distal ileum was then anastomosed to the cecum and anastomosis was undertaken using a side-to-side functional end-to-end stapled anastomosis. Her Diagnosis is Chrohn Ileitis. I'm thinking 44205? Please advise
