Default MTPJ arthrodesis

I can't find a cpt code for arthrodesis of 2nd metatarsophalangeal joint. I know 28750 is the arthrodesis of the great toe at the MTP joint, but what if he's doing the fusion at the 2nd MTP jt??? We've been all over the book and the web and we just can't figure it out! Can anyone help?

unlisted and use 28750 as your reference code
