    Default Genitofemoral nerve block

    My physician did a genitofemoral nerve block for genitofemoral neuralgia-can anyone suggest the best code to use in this situation?

    I think 355.8

    Or please check 355.* in tabular list & match with the details in your report.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks, I really need a cpt code- I've received several answers elsewhere and I'm trying to pinpoint the best one. I have received 64425,64447 and 64450. Any thoughts?

    By the way, About CPT then I think about 64450. For details please see attached image.

    Click on the link above to find a listing of nerve injections and their codes. Understand that this is a list someone put together, and it is not a final authority, but it may give you some insight.
