Hi, As per limited documentation sent by you, we can suggest the following codes. But we suggest you to route your such type of queries to our another service SOD so that our experts can provide you the exact codes.
1. ICD-9 codes: 733.13, 724.4, 724.9.
2. CPT code: 63030.
3. Corpectomy is removal of part of vertebral body to decompress spinal cord and nerves, which is based on the approach.

THANKS.
