Our doctor removed a malfunctioning G-tube and inserted a new one in one visit at the office. Can I bill using 99212 + 43760?

Yes, 43760 is the correct CPT code for the G-tube change.
However you should not report 99212 along with 43760 if there is no separate medical necessity.
In case of separate medical necessity use 43760 & 99212-25
