Happy Monday! Coders,
I need your opinion on the cpt code you would use for the above procedure-
partial exostectomy of the fifth metatarsal(28122) along with repair of peroneal brevis tendon (28200)
Can anyone explain the difference between 28122 and 28113?

**portion of the surgery*** rongeur was utilized to remove the osseous prominence over the base of the fifth metatarsal and smooth it to prevent bony pressure in the soft tissue.
Thanks so much for your help!
