    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know of a great source material that provides details on coding spine surgeries?

    Thank you!

    I like the COMMON CODING SCENARIOS from the NASS.

    ​Reading the instructions at the beginning of the spine coding section in the CPT book was helpful for me. In addition The Business of Spine and Medtronic has great information. Medtronic has free webinars on spine coding

    I usually attend the Spine Academy webinars through Medtronic yearly to see if there have been any updates to their presentations.  I find them to be the best way to learn coding for spinal surgeries.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm doing a webinar this month on spinal fusion coding for ICD-10-PCS and a coworker is doing CPT if that interests you.  Here's a link to our website:
