    Has anyone prefromed a service on a horseshoe kidney? My doc is seperating it and then perfromed a radical nephrectomy on the lt side.

    Default Maybe this will help

    This is NOT my area of expertise ... BUT

    Try posting the actual operative note. And specify whether you need help with CPT or ICD-9 codes.

    Also if there are codes you are considering list those as well.

    Hope that helps you get the kind of expert advice you want.
