    What is the anesthesia code for small bowel resection?

    Default small bowel resection

    If the procedure was done with an endoscope I believe 00810 would be the correct code. Check it out and see if it works.

    No it was an open procedure. So that wouldn't be the code

    Default Open procedure

    If the resection was an open procedure the code would be 00790.
