Mary, if you're there, the case that we discussed earlier this week regarding the interpositioned thumb, would you use modifier 51 or 59 for that case (for the osteophyte removal)?

neither, you wouldnt code for that, its inclusive in the 25447 as is the excision of the trapezoid, so you will have just the 25447 & 25310
