Procedure done is endoscopic debridement of plantar fascia with excision of calcaneal spur. Doctor wants to bill 28118 and 28060. First of all, if it was an open procedure, I would think 28119 would be more appropriate. Secondly, wouldn't an unlisted code 29999 be the only choice here? I looked at 29893 but don't think that would cover all of the work that was done (more than just a release of the fascia).
Thanks for any help!

Agreed. If it was all done through endoscope I'd look at 29999 with 28119 as the comparison.

You could look at 29893 plus 29999 compared to 28118, although that really feels like an unbundling of 28119 if we were to choose that route.
