Hemicraniectomy with Subtemporal Decompression

Nicole Posted Tue 10th of January, 2017 11:22:20 AM
The doc did a left sided hemicraniectomy and left sided subtemporal decompression. Diagnosis is Left Sided MCA Malignant cerebral infarct. Would this be CPT codes: 61322 & 61340?

Hi,

CPT code 61322 for left sided hemicraniectomy and

& 61340 for left sided subtemporal decompression are appropriate for the above mentioned scenario.
