Please help with CPT code

Wendy Posted Fri 08th of July, 2016 09:57:20 AM
My doctor was called into the OR during a general surgery due to an injury that occurred on the patient's ileal conduit. He robotically repaired the injury by performing "3 separate sutures into the muscle wall of the conduit and closed it over the mucosa." What CPT code best applies to this procedure?

This is a unique case and there is no specific CPT code for this procedure. So, you need to use unlisted "CPT Code 50949 - Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, ureter"
