cpt codes 24545 w/64718

Hello-does anyone have any information in addition to the NCCI edits-stating these 2 codes are not billable together? My doc is referencing Code X however I don't have access to it. I do not feel a 59 modifier is justified as per the op note "

The ulnar nerve was identified and an ulnar neurolysis was performed extending both proximal and distal to the fracture.  This was temporally tagged with a vessel loop for protection throughout the surgical procedure.  The fracture site was then identified...."  Any input would be awesome! Thanks!
