Could you please give me the CPT for this one?

Removal of segmental instrumentation, a 3 column osteotomy spinal cord decompression and laminectomy of T1, open treatment of fracture/ dislocation of C7 on T1 posterior cervical fusion of C2-T4; segmental instruction of C2-T4 complex; use of local bone graft, BMP, and mastergraft. Could you tell me the icd 9 and CPT codes?

We need complete OP report in this case.

Can you please just give me the codes from this? I do not have the op report available..

WHile I can provide the codes based on the information provided, the surgery seems way out of the norm and makes me suspiscious that the descriptions of procedure are misleading to create inappropriate unbundling. I am not able to give advice without reviewing the detailed operative note.
