I would like to verify if we would be able to charge for the frame and screws separately or if it is included int he procedure ?

20660 (Application of cranial tongs, caliper, or stereotactic frame, including removal (separate procedure)) is included in all spine procedures when fixation such as Gardner-Wells tongs is used throughout the case.
*
+61800 Application of stereotactic headframe for stereotactic radiosurgery (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)
(Use 61800 in conjunction with 61796, 61798)
