Is there a hernia repair code that would be appropriate to code along with the cholelithiasis? Since the hernia was sutured, I wasn't sure what code to use.
Thanks for any help.

View attachment 5301Is it a incisional hernia?

Code only the cholecystectomy, 47560. Repairing a hernia as part of the closure of another abdominal procedure is included in the other procedure. CPT code 49654, for laparoscopic repair of a hernia should not be coded in addition to 47560 for the lap cholecystectomy.
