Thread: SI Nerve Destruction which code should I use

    Question SI Nerve Destruction which code should I use

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've got a MD doing a SI Nerve Destruction should I use the 64622-64623?
    When I read the description for the 64622-64623 it says the lumbar/sacral region but he is in the SI region. Would this be the same?

    Please Advise

    64640 would be the correct code. You are correct that 64622/3 does not cover the SI region.
