Talonavicular Bone Spur

  1. Default Talonavicular Bone Spur
    Medical Coding Books
    Our ortho surgeon removed a talonavicular bone spur that was nearly fused to both of these bones (tallus & navicular). Would this be coded as a partial excision tallus / or navicular? or is there another code for excision of a bone spur?

    Thanks for the help.
