A growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain is called brain tumor. A brain tumor can be benign or malignant, the size, form and position of the tumor decides how a doctor treats a tumor. Whatever be the mode of treatment coding for skull base surgery is always tricky, and can cost you big-time.
Join neurosurgery coding expert Gregory J. Przybylski, MD, in this power packed brain tumor coding session, to understand the critical elements of open, skull base, endoscopic and stereotactic cranial surgery coding for brain tumors—to ensure complete and accurate identification of the appropriate diagnostic and procedure codes.
Plus, Greg will use case scenarios to highlight the coding rules. To describe the treatment of brain tumors, participants will also receive a summary of the predominant code sets, apart from that they will learn from multiple scenarios that demonstrate coding of these procedures.
Take a look the topics covered:
Who should attend? Neurosurgery coders and practice managers will benefit from insight provided into understanding the nuances of coding for cranial tumor surgery
