VP shunt placement coding

The neurosurgeon's coder and our general surgery coder cannot agree on which is the appropriate code for a VP shunt placement. We want to be compliant for CMS, but how can we get the CMS guideline on this code?

re: VP shunt placement coding

Is there a CMS site to verify this? Sorry, but you did not list your credentials, so could you include them?
