I'm not touching the spine case..lol

but for the foot fractures, yes you will need a modifier if the codes bundle in which case you will use the 59 modifier

For the spine case if 63047 & 63048 are the only procedures being done and the patient isn't in post-op for another procedure, than no modifiers are needed on either CPT code.
