I’m new to coding. What code would I use for radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerve?
You’re in luck! There is a new code in 2020: 64624 Destruction by neurolytic agent, genicular nerve branches including imaging guidance, when performed. The code includes destruction (e.g., chemical means, radiofrequency ablation) of all branches of the genicular nerve including the the superolateral, superomedial, and inferomedial genicular nerves. CPT 64624 also includes fluoroscopic/imaging guidance so you would not report a separate radiology code (7xxxx).
