:confused:
I am new at coding for spine surgeries and have a question? Dr did a posterior cervical wiring and fusion.
Not sure what code to use for this, I see 22841 but not sure that is the appropriate code for the wiring.
Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance

22841 would be used if he wired the spinous processes. If not then i would use 22842 if he wired 3 to 6 vertebral segments.
