    What CPT code would you use for excision of mass and decompression of ulnar nerve, left arm? Would CPT code 64718 be accurate?

  2. SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

    Use CPT code 64718 for release of ulnar nerve decompression at elbow region. If the ulnar nerve decompression release was performed at wrist region, the appropriate CPT code would be 64719. Append modifier LT with the CPT code for the procedure performed on left limb.
