Common reasons for Laminectomy (ICD-10)

Joshua Posted Fri 12th of June, 2020 05:47:24 AM
My company is putting together a pamphlet, listing the common reasons/DX(s) people have when certain procedures are performed. Can you please list some common ICD-10 codes common for a Laminectomy?

For example - this is the answer your team provided for the same question on a disectomy. We would like something similar for Laminectomy. Thanks again!
