    I need some help find both an ICD-9 and CPT code...The patient's diagnosis is Wandering Spleen Syndrome. The procedure performed was a splenopexy. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    You may want to look at the code description for procedure 38115. I've never heard of wandering spleen syndrome. Any takers?

    The only ICD-9 code I could find is 289.59 other disease of spleen - including wandering spleen. Not sure on the CPT code still looking.
