Thread: laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy, diverting loop ileostomy

    Default laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy, diverting loop ileostomy

    What CPT codes(s) would be used for laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy, mobilization of splenic flexure and diverting loop ileostomy? I know I would use 44213 for mobilization of splenic flexure, but I am having a hard time determining the correct code(s) for the sigmoid colectomy and diverting loop ileostomy.

    Thank you

    2017 ICD-10-CM Coding Book
    Without seeing the operative note I would use 44204 for the sigmoid colectomy, 44213 for the splenic flexure and 44188 for the diverting loop ileostomy.
