Default Duodenal Atresia/Duodenal Web

One of my pediatic surgeon will do a Duodenoduodenostomy to repair either duodenal atresia or deudenal web. I have used 44126 Enterectomy, resection of small intestine....but the surgeon does not resect the small intestine nor do an anastomosis. Just wondering if any one has a better code for this procedure?

Thanks in advance for your help.
