    Question Osteotomy - two seperate tarsal bones
    Medical Coding Books
    My doc performed a Medical Cuneiform Osteotomy and a Cubiod Osteotomy of the same foot through seperate incisions. Can I charge 28304 for the cuneiform and 28304-59 for the cubiod?

    Any thoughts would be extremely appreciated! thanks!!!
