Small intestinal endoscopy with patient's who had the gastric bypass surgery

As we all know effective 01/01/15, the provider has to state in the operative note on a small intestinal endoscopy at 50 cm past the pylorus now. However, a few of our patient's no longer have a pylorus. Any thoughts, reference, HELP! We need education, and also help educate our providers. Thanks, please have a great day.
