Resection of vestibular schwannoma

Caralee Posted Tue 18th of December, 2012 16:15:15 PM

Would the cpt code for a retromastoid craniotomy for resection of a vestibular schwannoma 3cm in diameter be 61510?

It appears that your surgeon performed one craniotomy and made a single incision, so you report 61510 only once.
