Do you have an Op report you could post excluding all info that would identify patient, physician and hospital? It sounds like they might be doing a cholecystectomy and a scope of the small intestine (duodenum) but there is something in that word that I can't break out. I could be wrong about my assumption but it is hard to tell exactly w/o the dictation of the procedure. Thanks!

This sounds like it might be a form of an ERCP to me. A scope is being done here not a surgery. But more info on the procedure would be needed in order to know for sure what is being done. Looking at choledochoduodenoscopy I can tell that the common bile duct was examined and the doudenum. I'm not sure what cpt you would use though. Maybe 43260 with modifier 52?
