I am looking the correct code to use for a ligation of an intersphincter fistula. I haven't had much luck, can anyone help me out with this?

The LIFT procedure (ligation of intersphincteric fistula) would be assigned CPT code 46275, "Surgical treatment of anal fistula (fistulectomy/fistulotomy); intersphincteric."
