Thread: Excision Ostechondroma Toe

  1. #1

    Default Excision Ostechondroma Toe

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please advise what the best code would be for excision of osteochondroma of the toe? Notes are: Incision made in the distal medial aspect of the 5th toe overlying the distal aspect of the distal phalanx. Dissection carried down with a freer elevator elevating the nail bed from the osteochondroma. The osteochondroma was removed with a rongeur.
    Thank you for your help!
