    I would use 28285- Correction hammertoe (eg interphalangeal fusion, partial or total phalangectomy). This is the only code I can see that would relate to the release of the PIP of the toe. Make sure to use correct T modifier to indicate which toe was released.

    If it is the release of the 5th toe with a cock up and plastic skin, then use 28286.

    I hope this helps!
