LAP LACR WITH SB RESEC & ENTEROSTOMY

Surgeon performed Lap low anterior colon resection(44207) while performing that he made a pfannenstiel incision to transect the colon. After performing anastomosis of colon/rectum he performed a small bowel resection with enterostomy through the pfannenstiel incision. My question is would this still be considered lap for the SB resection or can you bill open since he performed it through the pfannenstiel incision.
