TLIF CPT 22633 AND Posterolateral Fusion 22612
If our surgeon does a TLIF (22633) at L4-5 and then does a posterolateral fusion at L5-S1 (22612) can we report both of these codes or do we have to report 22633 and 22614??

Hi Martha! You will need to report 22614 for L5-S1 if there was not an interbody fusion completed at that level.
