I wish to code removal of gastric band and continue with the procedure laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, but there is no code for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

Nikolai von Schroeders answers:

The code for the removal of a gastric band is 44.97 Laparoscopic removal of gastric restrictive device(s).
