    Doctor did the following: Bilateral subperiosteal dissection was performed. Posterior fossa was exposed. Approximately 4 cm above the foramen magnum was measured out using a high speed burr, the bone was drilled out in such manner the foramen magnum could be completely decompressed. Laminectomy was also performed at C1 and C2. Then the Dura was opened and a dural patch was sized and sutured into place. Would these be the proper codes for the procedure above: 61345/63045/63048
