    Question Lap Gastropexy & Lap Hiatal Hernia Rpr

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need help coding these 2 procedures. Can I only use procedure code 43280 for both procedures?

    If your surgeon is considering the suturing of the esophagus back to the stomach as the gastropexy, then 43280 is the only code you would need.
