    Does anyone have a good code for a Partial Omentectomy ?

  2. #2


    Partial Omentectomy , resection of omemtum, or omentectomy all lean on to the code 49255. Almost most the resection of omentum is partial only. Complete omentectomy is very rare to be under taken and not contemplated in general.
