Hello,
Do anyone know the correct code for a reversal of hartmans colostomy laparscopic? I believe 44206 is the appropriate code, but was not sure. Thanks in advance!:eek:

I believe the correct is actually:

44227 Laparoscopy, surgical, closure of enterostomy, large or small intestine, with resection and anastomosis

44206 would be used when performing the initial laparoscopic Hartmann's procedure, not the closure.

:D
