Neurosurgery and general surgery co surgeon
The coding for a VP Shunt is not clear in the CPT® book. Does 62223 include the abdominal placement of the tubing done by the general surgeon?
Or can we use 49425-62-59 for the abdominal portion?
We have a neurosurgeon and general surgeon modifier 62 doing the case together.

Our general surgeons do the abdominal portion of the procedure and we bill 62223-62 only
