Is there a cpt code for this procedure done laparscopically? I find the open procedure, but am unable to find the Laparoscopic procedure. Please advise. Would you need to use the unlisted procedure and compare to 43840?

Well, you are right, it is for open procedure. So, it is appropriate to code CPT 44238 Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, intestine (except rectum). Hope it helps!
