Simplify your coding with this collection of procedure-related information specific to neurosurgery. The 2020 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Guide to Coding has related procedures grouped into sections for easy reference, including:

  • Cranial
  • Pain/Interventional/Functional
  • CSF shunting
  • Peripheral Nerve
  • Spine
  • Extracranial Cerebrovascular
  • Catheter/Endovascular/Percutaneous

All procedures are listed by a coding number (searchable through a comprehensive index) and an associated descriptor. Intraoperative and postoperative services that have been included or excluded from the global service package are presented in a streamlined, easy-to-read manner.

Updated with 2021 coding changes and current AANS coding recommendations, the AANS Guide to Coding includes features requested by neurosurgical coders. This Guide is ideal for neurosurgeons, their billing and coding personnel, and office managers.
