A patient had a Right hemicolectomy with end colostomy and sigmoid colectomy
with primary anastomosis done and I am not quite sure how to code this. I have the Right Hemi as 44143 but what about the sigmoid colectomy? is there an additional code or would I be changing what I have so far? The DX is Perforation of right colon, perforation of sigmoid colon with pneumatosis.
