I know the POEM procedure, is reported with code 43497, Lower esophageal myotomy, transoral (ie,perioral) endoscopic myotomy (POEM). One of our surgeon does the G-POEM procedure. This is a gastric peroral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM) how is this reported?
There is no current CPT code for this procedure. Report with an unlisted code, 43999, Unlisted procedure, stomach.
