laminectomy with biopsy and neuromonitoring

Best answers
Hi, I was wondering if the surgeon is doing an epidural AND neuromonitoring during his hematoma removal and his laminectomy of T6 through L1, with a biopsy of the hematoma removal, would I only code the 63276 for the thoracic laminectomy with biopsy and the 63277 for the lumbar laminectomy with biopsy? It just states "biopsy of the lamina" sent to pathology. I'm wondering if neuromonitoring is included in these?
