    I would not use either one, I would use 00752 as this is for a laparoscopy incarcerated umbiical hernia repair. The alternate(s) are not laparoscopy. Hope this helps.

    I agree. Crosswalk says 00750 or 00752. 00750 says other hernias not specified and the 00752 says ventral hernia so I would use that one.
