The physician takes patient to the OR to fix hernia but found diastasis of recti muscle. He "repaired by imbricating sutures figure-of-eight #1 Ethibond in the anterior rectus sheath. Reinforced by 0 PDS suture running. The SFS was then closed after two 19-French Blake drains were placed.... wounds were closed." I'm not sure which code is appropriate. Can anyone help? Thank you.
