ICD-10-PCS: Spinal Procedure Coding addresses the coding of spinal fusion, multiple procedure types, fixing past fusions, and other spinal procedures including procedures that are new and innovative ways to do procedures on the spine. ICD-10-PCS: Spinal Procedure Coding enables coders to visualize and understand complicated 3-D skeletal structures and then accurately and completely code the intricate surgical procedures performed.
