We are not clear as to how to bill each stage of the 2 stage Fowler-Stephens orchidopexy. We usually perform a first stage clipping of the testicular vessels via a laparoscope at the time of initial laparoscopy for a non-palpable undescended testis. Six months later we perform the second stage and this might be done as an open procedure or laparoscopically. Which codes would you use for these procedures?
