Partial gastrectomy

    Question Partial gastrectomy
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a provider that perfromed a partial gastrectomy of the gastric cardia. I am unable to locate a CPT code that supports that procedure. I am thinking the only code to best represent this would be an unlisted code. Can anyone offer any other suggestions that would best represent what was done? Thanks.

    I think you should bill an unlisted code in this case.
