SACRAL NERVE BLOCK

Tammy Posted Wed 17th of August, 2016 15:28:33 PM
PT HAS NGB WITH REFRACTORY URGE INCONTINENCE AND BLADDER SPASMS, DID A SACRAL NERVE BLOCK ON S3 AND S4 SACRAL FORAMINA. WHAT CPT CODE SHOULD I USE FOR THIS PROCEDURE? THANKS...

Clinically the lateral branches of the dorsal sacral nerve plexus are considered peripheral nerves. So, in your case, report branch block injections at S3 and S4, report 2 units of CPT code 64450, Injection, anesthetic agent; other peripheral nerve or branch.
