I have a doctor who performed an implantation of a nerostimulator (63650)and later during the post op period did a 62311. The dx are the same for both services. Is the 62311 considered part of the global pkg of 63650. If yes, would it be different if the dx was different? I find a lot of information that relates the anesthesiologist, but not the doctor performing the procedure.

its not normal to have to do another procedure during the post op period. You should be able to capture the charge using the 78 modifier.
