Unfortunately there is no ICD10 yet. Maybe someday. That would help.

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.
