deformity coding

Hello-

What are your guidelines on when to use the deformity fusion codes? (22800-22812) For instance, if the patient has a deformity caused by a fracture or previous fusion? Or if the patient has congenital or degenerative scoliosis or kyphosis? We have been told different ways to use these codes in these scenarios and would like your input.

Thanks!
