Ray Resection Toe - Help please!

  1. Default Ray Resection Toe - Help please!
    Exam Training Packages
    A partial first ray resection was performed and the second toe was removed at the MTP joint. Obviously, I will code the 2nd toe amputation as 28820, but does that code allow for the partial first ray resection or is there another code for that aspect?
    Thanks so much!

    I use code 28810 - this should cover 1st Ray to 5th ray.

    28810 is good when the metatarsal is removed in total? Coding Companion says: ...deep to the tarsometatarsal joint?

    I am still wondering about this one.... What do y'all think of 28820 + 28122 for ray amputation of toe?
