For Richard Hoskins:

Youprobably know that Stata's icd9 commands include

icd9 gen newvar = varname, desc

where varname is a variable containing icd9 codes. This creates a new variable with the descriptions of the short description of the icd9 code. I don't know if this would give you what you need, but it works great for getting a preliminary look at the diagnoses or procedures represented in a subset of the data.
