Cecectomy with ileocolic anastomosis


Best answers
I am working on trying to determine CPT code for the above procedure. I have CPT code 44160 because of the ileocolic anastomosis. However the provider did not remove the terminal ileum. So then am I still able to use the 44160? Or do I need to use CPT code 44140.
