If physician does removal of total disk arthoplasty, C5-C6 anterior arthrodesis with placement of prosthetic intervertebral device with PEEK cage and instrumentation, should I just bill 22864 for the removal of the arthoplasty, or 22551;22851;22845;20931 for the fusion? Per CCI 22864 cannot be billed with 22551,22851,22845,20931
Whisch codes should be billed?

It seems to be closest with 22861 (Revision including replacement of total disc arthroplasty (artificial disc), anterior approach, single interspace; cervical).
