Pediatric Neurosurgical Coding

Pediatric 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.

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Summarize the anatomy that is important for nervous system coding,
  • Identify the root operation(s) associated with the corrective procedures for each condition discussed, and 
  • Assign the accurate code(s) for these procedures
