procedure coding can be challenging due to the special nature of pediatric
conditions and anomalies. Join us to take the guesswork out of nervous system
procedures such as ventriculoperitoneal other cranial shunts, collection of CSF
in various ways, anomaly repairs for spina bifida and Chiari malformation, and
procedures to control seizures and spasticity.
You’ll learn about the anatomy, how to identify the correct root
operation and assign the accurate codes.
conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
the anatomy that is important for nervous system coding,
the root operation(s) associated with the corrective procedures for each
condition discussed, and
the accurate code(s) for these procedures
