Patient had a previous sleeve gastrectomy done and is now returning to have the sleeve converted to roux en y bypass due to weight regain and severe reflux with hiatal hernia. Would I code this as 43645 or unlisted 43659?

You can report 43644, Laparoscopy, surgical, gastric restrictive procedure; with gastric bypass and Roux-en-Y gastroenterostomy for roux limb 150 cm or less and 43645 for greater than 150 cm.
