I thought I would share what codes were eventually selected; in the event this scenario could benefit someone else in the future.
After a thoroughly discussing the case with the surgeon, we came up with 63664, 63685, and 63662 (63662-for the previous lead). I also presented this operative note to another group and a highly respected consultant in the Pain Mgmt field also recommended 63664/63685. Since 63662 was not suggested, I'm revisiting this code but 63664/63685 are the codes thus far.
