I have a surgeon who always lists "take-down" of hepatic flexure when doing
a partial colectomy (44140). I do NOT see any code for this , and honestly, think it's probably bundled into the colectomy. I do see a code for take-down of splenic flexure, but thats not what he's doing. Also, he recently did a partial colectomy (44140) and a liver resection (47120) for metastatic ca., and also now wants to add the take-down of hepatic and lysis of adhesions. Again, I feel they are bundled. Can anyone offer any help?? Am I missing any codes?? My thinking is that codes for colectomies and liver resections likely inlcude hepatic flexure take-downs.
