Does anyone know if the CPT 0171T should be used for the insertion of the Wallis Device? I'm thinking so but I want a second opinion. According to the Op Note nothinig else was done but putting in the device. No facetectomy, foraminotomy or Laminectomy.

What I found about the Wallis was it is an implant that is used for chronic low back pain (interspinous process implant) There is information on the internet; I even found pictures.

Sounds similar to the x-stop.

I do not see any other code that seems to fit.

Actually, both are very interesting check them both out on the web.

thanks
Tina
