    Default jejunojejunostomy
    Medical Coding Books
    One of our patients had a Roux-en-Y, then a week later had a bowel obstruction. Patient had a jejunojejunostomy performed laparascopically. The open in 44130 but not sure what the lap would be - any takers?

    Look at 44202 to see if your documentation supports the code.

    The open procedure is 44120, per CPT.
