    Default Endoscopic discectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are starting to do the YESS (endoscopic discectomy) procedures AKA Arthroscopic endoscopic microdiscectomy. The doctor said it definitely fits CPT 63056 because its via transpedicular approach. Is anyone else using anything different, please advise if you would like to see notes.

    Default YESS procedure

    Depending on the approach I think you both might be right! Thank you for this as I was wracking my brain to find it too.
