    One of our providers will begin performing the NuVasive XLIF procedure, l-spine, in the near future; any suggestions for coding/billing?

    thanks!

    That is incorrect. The PLIF is reported with 22630. The XLIF (extreme lateral interbody fusion) is best reported using 22558 and this is also recommended by the AANS.
