Question:
My physician performed sacral nerve destruction of the S1, S2, S3 and S4 peripheral nerves.  How do I code this?

Answer:
Each individual peripheral neurolytic block would be reported with code 64640, Destruction by neurolytic agent, peripheral nerve or branch; coding would be 64640 x 4 units.
