CPT® Code Confusion for Ileostomy Reversal

Patient has had Subtotal Colectomy with Ileostomy Placement in 2001.

Patient has had Ileostomy Revision - Creation of Brooke Ileostomy in 2008.


In 2014, Patient is informed by Surgeon that she is a candidate for Ileostomy Reversal through surgery.

For the Ileostomy Reversal surgery procedure, the surgeon provided the following...

Diagnosis and ICD-9 Provided by surgeon for the patient : (V44.2 Ileostomy)

Procedure and CPT® Code(s) Provided by surgeon for patient: (49000 Exploratory Laparotomy AND 44625 Ileostomy Reversal)

Would the CPT® Codes provided by the surgeon be correct for an Ileostomy Reversal?
