Hi-
I am trying to code muscle repair of a patients foot. He stated he repaired "intrinsic muscle of left foot". The intrinsic muscle of the medial aspect of the foot was isolated both proximally and distally and 2 figure of eight 3-0 Vicryl sutures were used to repair this muscle. I asked the physician and he said he repaired the flexor hallucis brevis muscle of the foot. I cannot find any muscle repair codes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
