HELP ME PLEASE, SOMEONE!!!!
My doc did a condylectomy of pt's 2nd toe; proximal phalanx. The op report states "...The distal aspect of the proximal phalanx condyle was directly exposed and a condylectomy perfored using a bone cutting rongeur."
I have been all over the CPT book, looking for the last hour w/our head coder here, and we can't find a code! The closest we come is 28288 (which is what the dr used) but that's for the metatarsal head. Not the prox phalanx. Then there's 28153, but that's for the DISTAL phalanx...not proximal.
Can anyone help???
I'm becoming a little frazzled!!
