Anyone have any idea of a code for this procedure? This is not an abscess or tumor, just a bone spur. Thanks.

Those codes do not fit as this was the mid foot. The mid foot includes the following:
Definition: The area in the middle of the foot. The midfoot includes the "cuboid," "navicular," "medial cuneiform," "intermediate cuneiform" and "lateral cuneiform" bones and surrounding soft tissues.

I spoke to the surgeon and he said the spur was in the area of the intermediate cuneiform and the navicular bone.

28122 does not include the bones in the mid-foot. The tarsal or metatarsal are not considered the mid foot. I guess I am going to have to go with unlisted. Thanks for the suggestions.

You DID include those bones in YOUR definition of "midfoot" above???

The navicular and cuneiform are tarsals???

Maybe we do not really understand your question?
