    Have you checked out 63075? I think I'd need more info about the procedure to be able to tell you the right code - there's lots of codes that mention cervical disc decompression starting at 63012 and going up, bu tthey're different procedures and different approaches...I'd start looking in that area to find the one you're looking for.
