A patient with progressive idiopathic thoracolumbar scoliosis, spondylosis with foraminal stenosis and rib cage deformity was admitted for spinal fusion surgery. Through a right thoracotomy approach, a right anterior spinal fusion was performed with placement of screws into the vertebral body and seating of a rod cord at T5-T11. Significant correction of the scoliosis curve was obtained across the thoracic levels. The patient was repositioned for exposure of the left side to complete left anterior spinal fusion at T11-L4. Screws were placed into the vertebral body and a rod cord was secured across the levels with significant correction of the scoliosis and derotation of the lumbar segments. What are the code assignments for this procedure?
In ICD-10-PCS, this procedure is not classified as a fusion, but rather as an anterior vertebral tethering procedure. Reposition is the appropriate root operation. Assign the following ICD-10-PCS codes:
