Bilateral Sciatica

Bilateral Sciatica

June 10, 2021

Question:
What is the correct  ICD-10-CM for bilateral sciatica? My doctor tells me to use both M54.31 & M54.32 but this doesn’t seem right.

Answer:
There is not a diagnosis code for bilateral sciatica. You are correct to use M54.32 and M54.31 to report this condition.
