Transpedicular Discectomy and Laminectomy

Maria Posted Fri 28th of June, 2013 19:06:31 PM

If my surgeon does a Transpedicular Discectomy and a Redo Laminectomy, medial facetectomy at the same level, are both 63056 and 63047 billable?

Yes, both can be billed together, but we would go with 63042 instead of 63047, since it's a re-do procedure (Laminectomy, medial facetectomy).
