Nerve Testing & Wound Vac Eval

    Question Nerve Testing & Wound Vac Eval
    Medical Coding Books
    I have 2 questions for which I could really use some help:
    1) Can a surgeon (Hand Surgeon in this case) bill for intraoperative
    "neurological stem testing" and if yes, what would be the correct
    2) The same surgeon "assessed, evaluated and confirmed"
    placement of a wound VAC in the OR, what would the code be for
    Any help is greatly appreciated
