Can someone please point me in the right direction to properly code a resection of duodenal diverticulum and resection of second portion of duodenum?
Thank you in advance for any help with this.

The duodenum is part of the small intestine.
was this done open or laparoscopically? Without an op report I can only provide suggestions, but you might want to take a look at 44010, 44110, 44120 or 44202
