    Default os trigonum and lateral process talus excision

    Can two separate cpt codes be used for excision of the lateral process of the talus (anterior to the lateral malleolus) and os trigonum (posterior to the lateral malleolus) at same surgical event? The same incision was used, but two distinct surgical dissections were required to address each pathology.
