More Money – Increase Your Bottomline

Guy with neck pain

Everyone wants to know if doing endoscopic spine surgery will improve their bottom line. 

The answer to this question is a resounding YES, if you use the correct billing codes. 

This is a key part of the guided pathway to success that you will never get from any corporate courses but will get from the Endoscopic Spine Academy (ESA). The correct billing codes are the most important part of reimbursement. 

The correct billing codes also have to match what you are doing. 

Each course in the Endoscopic Spine Academy demonstrates a procedure in detail, the name of the procedure and the proper codes to use for billing.  

What’s different about the codes?

There are some things that might never occur to you until you can see something. 

There is no better example of this than what happened to knee surgery after the endoscope was introduced. Things like plica and chondral defects were “discovered”, since they were never seen with open surgery. 

The same is true with endoscopic spine surgery. You will see things that you never dreamed of, and many of the problems are “bony” in nature. Osteophytes that trap and pinch the soft tissues of the facet joints are a good example.

These are problems that you can’t “manage”, they must be removed for definitive treatment. 

When you start removing bone, the billing codes change. 

You may be asking yourself…how much $ am I leaving on the table by not doing endoscopic spine surgery?

This is a very open-ended question that starts with, “how many cases of facet syndrome do you see that are not responding to conservative treatment”? 

Or “what if you did an endoscopic facet debridement instead of rhizotomies ?” 

If the reimbursement for an endoscopic facet debridement is around $1000, you can figure it for yourself. 

I have had a 100% concierge cash practice for over 10 years, and I can tell you one thing.

In the medical world, people will pay to get more beauty or less pain.
