    Default Unlisted
    When we take a patient to the OR for Gtube removal under anesthesia we use CPT 43999 Unlisted procedure, stomach. Our description is "Gtube removal requiring anesthesia."

    Removal at the bedside or in clinic is considered part of the E/M service for that date.

    Hope that helps.
