I have a podiatrist that did a MPJ replacement for hallux limitus. He found an article in a podiatry magazine that states that you can use 28293 for hallux limitus. I don't agree because the patient does not have a bunion. Don't you have to have a bunion to use 28293 (that is what the CPT description says)? I suggested the unlisted code.
Does any one have any suggestions? Am I wrong and you can use 28293 or do we have to use the unlisted code?
