How do I code for an open repair of a sliding hiatal hernia?
Per CPT, report code 43327 for an open repair of a sliding hiatal hernia via a laparotomy approach and 43328 for the repair via a thoracotomy approach. For more detailed information about hiatal hernias; laparoscopic approaches, coding with bariatric surgery, and more, sign up for an upcoming ACS course in Nashville, Dallas or Chicago.
