Their is no such code for pedicle removal only. You can use CPT 22207 (Osteotomy of spine, posterior or posterolateral approach, 3 columns, 1 vertebral segment (eg, pedicle/vertebral body subtraction); lumbar) which include pedicle removal along with lamina and vertebral body to correct the deformity or CPT code 22214 (Osteotomy of spine, posterior or posterolateral approach, 1 vertebral segment; lumbar).
