Can you bill 20680 for the toe implant replacement?

Background: Patient had a toe implant placed, which failed later.

Now my doc is removing the implant and doing an arthrodesis.

The codes don't hit an edit, but I am under the impression that if you have to remove an implant to perform a procedure, that you should not bill for the removal of the implant.

Is that right?

20680
20902
28750
28313
