Thread: lap app w/omentectomy

    Default lap app w/omentectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our surgeon has performed a lap append with partial omentectomy. He is using 44970 for lap app and 49329-52 for partial omentectomy. Is this correct? What about 49255? Thanks!

    Default Can you post the op note

    I think you'll get a more accurate response if you post the op note.

    I don't think you can bill for the omentectomy as that is a
    separate procedure.
