Default Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence

My surgeon (OTO) along with a Neurosurgeon is performing a craniotomy with a middle fossa skull base approach for repair of a superior semicircular canal dehiscence. The defect is corrected with locally harvested fascia as well as local bone graft from the craniotomy site. Any ideas on the appropriate CPT codes for this? Thank you for your help.

Default Sccd

Hello All,

I use CPT 69960 for this. It decribes the Middle Cranial Fossa as well as the use of the Temporalis muscle.

Thank you,
