    Question Takedown of Nissen fundoplication?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,
    Does anyone know how to code out a "Takedown of Nissen fundoplication"? (original surgery was not done by our practice) I seem to only get 43999. (unlisted proc.-stomach) Thank you so much!

    Smile 43360?

    I think I've found it... 43360. Does anyone agree? I will have to show the surgeon to verify.
