More feedback needed...

Without more detail on the procedure here are a few codes to consider; 61566 would be used if the physician removes a flap of bone to access the area of the brain, and then removes the amygdaloid and the hippocampus from the cerebral cortex.

Consider 61567 if the physician measured the electrical signals in the cerebral cortex during the procedure, using a device.

If there is anyone with more information on this procedure, please give us your feedback on this subject, it would be much appreciated.
