Question:
How is a laparoscopic pyloroplasty reported?

Answer:
There is no current CPT code laparoscopic pyloroplasty, only an open code. An open code may not be used if a procedure is done laparoscopically. An unlisted code must be used. In this case, use code 43659, unlisted laparoscopic procedure, stomach.
