Pouch excision

Stephanie Posted Thu 06th of October, 2011 14:54:15 PM

My doctor performed surgery on a patient and put the descriptor as "Excision of pouch". She stated that this was a removal of the J pouch which she said was an extremely complicated procedure and felt that the addition of modifier in 22 in this case would be appropriate.
Please help.......Thank you
