M48.08 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of spinal stenosis, sacral and sacrococcygeal region. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code M480 is used to code Lumbar spinal stenosis

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a medical condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves at the level of the lumbar vertebra. This is usually due to the common occurrence of spinal degeneration that occurs with aging. It can also sometimes be caused by spinal disc herniation, osteoporosis or a tumor. In the cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) region it can be a congenital condition to varying degrees.
