I'm confused because in some cases it looks to me like I should be using only the 63001-63005, which is Laminectomy with decompression without facetectomy, foraminotomy, or discectomy. But it seems that most people are using the 63045-63048 codes, which would include facetectomy and foraminotomy. So my question is, if the facetectomy, and foraminotomy are not clearly delineated in the op report, are you supposed to use that code? There's probably something I'm missing, so any help would be greatly appreciated! I could also use guidance on when to use 63020 and 63040 codes. I feel like I always do when I start some new specialtyverwhelmed, and lost. Any help is appreciated! thank you!
