I do coding of spinal surgeries only, so I think I can help you.
Our doctor's normally code this as "63047". The CPT book does say "and/or" so it doesn't have to be both.
I wish I could tell you that it gets easier, but spine has alot of GRAY areas. Get ready for many debates with others regarding the right way to code spine/neuro procedures!
