Gastric Band Fill


Best answers
Doctor performed a gastric band fill with flouroscopy.

Using flouroscopy guidance, port was accessed with a Huber needle without difficulty. The patient was then placed in a standing position and the flouroscopic guided upper GI swallow was performed to allow good fill of the band to 4cc. Once this was accomplished and the patient felt good, the needle was removed and dressing was applied.

Anyone have procedure code suggestions for this?
