    When coding spine surgeries always look for and code when appropriate the following:

    Decompression
    Arthrodesis
    Instrumentation
    Bone Graft

    Possible others:
    Microdissection (69990)
    Navigation (61795)

    22802 and 22843 are correct in addition use 20930 for the graft.

    22802 and 22843 are correct. I see an autograft (patients own bone) and allograft was also grafted. 20930 & 20936
