Laparoscopic Coding

A Posted Mon 03rd of November, 2014 19:44:36 PM

Patient had gastric lysis of adhesions taken down and repair and patch of gastrojejunal fistula. LOA will be 44180, will the repair and patch of the gastrojejunal fistula need to be coded with 43659 or is there a better code to use? Thanks

Yes, there is no listed code for laparoscopic repair of gastrocolic fistula. You should use unlisted code 43659, Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, stomach.

Thanks !!
