Thread: Hemilaminectomy of S1-S2

    Default Hemilaminectomy of S1-S2

    AAPC: Back to School
    My spine surgeon just did a Hemilaminectomy of S1-S2 and he chose 63030. But that code is for Lumbar...not Sacral region. Does anyone know whether there is another more appropriate CPT?

    Default 63030 for a lumbar hemilaminectomy

    That is the only code that will work. There are no other codes for the sacral region, just the lumbar.
