Procedure performed was stated as a Colonscopy with cold Polypectomy.
Pt had lower anterior resection anastomosis. " The colonoscope was introduced and was advanced to the ileocolic anastomosis. The scar was linear and smooth, small bowel looked normal. At about 80 cm a small sessile polyp was removed in a piecemeal fashion.
Scope was withdrawn". Dr gave cpt of 45380 I am questioning this. Can anyone help ?
Thanks !!!
