What is a CPT code for a lumbar osteophytectomy? ICD 10 is M99.73

The most appropriate code for the above mentioned procedure is CPT 63047 (Laminectomy, facetectomy and foraminotomy (unilateral or bilateral with decompression of spinal cord, cauda equina and/or nerve root[s], [eg, spinal or lateral recess stenosis]), single vertebral segment; lumbar)
Hope this helps.
