Recorded On: 01/20/2022

2022 CPT Update for Spine Surgery 

Cost: $149

Length: 49-Minutes

2022 brings big changes to spine surgery coding with the introduction of new posterior lumbar decompression CPT codes (63052, 63053) when performed with a posterior lumbar interbody fusion (22630-22634). Historically, there has been much confusion about reporting a decompression code with a posterior lumbar interbody fusion but that confusion no longer exists! We will discuss the historical controversy but focus on how to use the new posterior lumbar decompression codes as well as documentation “best practices.” 

Bonus: The new neurosurgery LITT codes will also be discussed.
