Can you please help me with a code for a laparoscopic graham patch repair of a perforated ulcer of the roux limb. The doctor also did laparoscopic lysis of adhesions and an EGD and a laparoscopic gastrostomy tube insertion. Thank you.

As there is no such code for Laparoscopic graham patch repair of roux limb ulcer, kindly use the unlisted code 43659 along with the proper documentation of the procedure with approach.
Kindly check the CCI edit with the other procedure code for laparoscopic lysis of adhesions, EGD and a laparoscopic gastrostomy tube insertion.
