Laparoscopic nephrolithotomy and pyelolithotomy (IPG212)
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on laparoscopic nephrolithotomy and pyelolithotomy.
Renal (kidney) stones can form in one or both kidneys. In laparoscopic nephrolithotomy and pyelolithotomy, small incisions are made in the abdomen and the stones are removed from the kidney using a fine fibreoptic tube to see and perform simple movements inside the body (also known as 'keyhole surgery').
M06.1 Open removal of calculus from kidney
Includes: Nephrolithotomy and Pyelolithotomy

The NHS Classifications Service of NHS Connecting for Health is the central definitive source for clinical coding guidance and determines the coding standards associated with the classifications (OPCS-4 and ICD-10) to be used across the NHS. The NHS Classifications Service and NICE work collaboratively to ensure the most appropriate classification codes are provided. www.connectingforhealth.co.uk/clinicalcoding
