Avulsion of nail plate, partial or complete, simple; single
The physician avulses a nail plate partially or completely. A digital nerve block is used to numb the top of the digit. The physician bluntly dissects the nail plate from the nail bed. Any bleeding is cauterized. The digit is bandaged. Report 11730 if only one nail plate is removed. Report 11732 for each additional nail plate removed.
Paring or cutting of benign hyperkeratotic lesion (eg, corn or callus); single lesion
The physician removes a benign hyperkeratotic skin lesion such as a corn or callus by cutting, clipping, or paring. Report 11055 when one lesion is removed; 11056 when two to four lesions are removed; and 11057 when more than four lesions are removed.
**Here is the Lay Description for each of the procedures you noted. I do not believe it would be the 11055, but I would review the documention to know exactly what the provider did.
