Far Lateral Dicectomy with Foraminotomy

Annie Posted Tue 02nd of December, 2014 17:31:19 PM

Our physician performed a right L5-S1 far lateral discectomy for lumbar radiculopathy. I know that code is 63056, but he also did foraminotomy for foraminal stenosis of L5-S1 right. I could not find a code for a forminotomy without a laminectomy. Please advice.
