Is a transmetatarsal amputation of the foot (not just toe), non-traumatic, 88307 or 88305? Padget does not discuss this distinction for the foot. I recall finding something about it at one time supporting 88307, but for the life of me, I now can't locate the information. Help!

In our practice , nearly all the docs go with 88307 and I've not heard any negative feedback from using it. This would be a case of something along the lines of "...skin/bone/cartilage from amputation; osteosclerosis/metaplasia/gangrenous change, 10cm" , right? (just one example)

hope that helps!
