L5-S1 Foraminotomy

    Default L5-S1 Foraminotomy
    New Call-to-action
    Doctor did a foraminotomy only at L5-S1. I can't find any code that is just for this procedure, so I'm considering 63047 with a modifier to reduce services. Anyone with additional insights?

    That's what I recommend. I have contacted the Spine Line on this very issue before and this is also their recommendation.
