    I have a report stating that the Dr. was doing an exploratory laparoscopy and didn't find didn't find anything, however while he was in there he placed a
    J-Tube. He said it wasn't done percutaneously or endoscopicaly. Any other ideas on how to bill this? I'm trying to avoid unlisted if possible.
