    Does anyone have any information on coding a diaphragmatic hernia that is NOT neonatal and not traumatic?

    Any information on Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia repair?

    Default CPT 2009 professional edition

    2009 CPT professional edition ... begins bottom of page 185 ... under DIAPHRAGM, Repair

    Something in that section should work. Don't forget to read the parenthetical remarks, too ...

    Hope that helps,
