CO-SURGEON PROCEDURE...ROBOT WAS DOCKED,ONCE CO-SURGEON WAS DONE DISSECTING THE OMENTAL ADHESIONS, MY DOCTOR STEPPED IN;A SMALL PORTION OF THE OMENTUM WAS LEFT FOR THE INFERIOR MASS; THIS WAS DIVIDED WITH THE VESSEL SEALING DEVICE. HE CUT WIRES, REMOVED THEM FROM THE BODY. SO I'M NEEDING CPT CODES FOR HIS PART....HOPE THIS HELPS.
