The code series, 63265-63268, is for laminectomy procedures to remove intraspinal lesions other than neoplasm so these codes would never be used for tumor removal.

The biggest concern is whether or not the debridement is truly excisional in nature, and if the documentation truly supports an excisional debridement. HIA has written a previous Coding Tip..
