LIFT SPROCEDURE FOR COLORECTAL

KATHLEEN Posted Wed 25th of January, 2012 21:32:44 PM

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?

Thank you
Steph

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