    Endometrial implants are nothing but the endometrial tissues getting infiltrated or embedded into the tissues of the organs ,one such eg is getting into the rectum /and sigmoid colon or any intestinal part and causes ENDOMETRIOSIS and depending on th etissues or organs invovled the name is given. In this scenario, it is called rectal/rectosigmoidal/ large intestinal Endometriosis - it is lesion type and excision of lesion-
    Excision rectal lesion or tumor- is the appropriateCPT code you have to look for - if open surgery, may be in one of these 45150 or 45160.

    Diagnosis code will be 617.5- Intestinal Endometriosis.
    Hope this helps .
