Takedown Ureterostomy

  1. Default Takedown Ureterostomy

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a takedown of a ureterstomy? The code for creating one is 50860 but I feel like 50920 is inappropriate for taking it down. Thoughts?

    Is the surgeon going to re-implant the ureter into the bladder? If so, look at 50780.
