Pedicle Screw Removal only

I have a spine surgeon who removed pedicle screws but did not replace any. Typically I would used CPT 22850 but since that is all he did and that is an add on code what do I use? The pt had a fusion 2 weeks prior and the screws are now malpositioned so needed to come out. Can anyone help? Thank you.

According to my book, 22850 isn't an add-on code. Possibly double check that??
