Hi Victoria,

Codes 22523 and 22524 got deleted in Jan 2015 and were replaced by CPT codes 22510, 22511, 22512, 22513, 22514, and 22515 which are active till date.


The earlier code range 22520 to 22525 was available for reporting percutaneous vertebroplasty and augmentation procedures that the provider performs only on the thoracic or lumbar vertebral bodies. If the same procedure was done for a cervical or sacral vertebral body, the codes available to report were unlisted code 22899, Unlisted procedure, spine or a temporary S code, S2360, Percutaneous vertebroplasty, one vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral injection; cervical. However, in 2015, new percutaneous vertebroplasty codes 22510 and code 22511 receive a change to cover the cervicothoracic and lumbosacral spinal regions and all codes in the range become inclusive of imaging guidance.
