    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

    I am having trouble coming up with a CPT code for this procedure. Can anyone help me please - Thank you.

    NAME OF PROCEDURE: Right plantar foot bone debridement.

    TECHNICAL PROCEDURE:
    A small stab wound was made about a centimeter long over the lateral aspect of the foot. Dissection continued as much subperiosteally as possible over the plantar aspect of the foot down to the area of the callus and plantar bony prominence in the mid foot region. The burr was then inserted and the burr was used to burr down the plantar bony prominence. This was done until palpating through the area of the callus it was not felt that there was any further prominence.

    Look at 28005 or 11044, not sure of your diagnosis.
