    Default Help with a CPT for a surgery, please

    AAPC: Back to School
    Attention was directed to the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Under fluoroscopic
    guidance, a 0.45-K wire was used to drill transchondrally through the chondral plate and
    to inspire angiogenesis and healthy fibrocartilaginous production. This was done multiple
    times, approximately 5-applications at 3-sites, medial and lateral first
    metatarsophalangeal joint.

    Dr says "percutaneous transchondral drilling 1st mpj"

    I'm thinking 28022 with 76000

    Any takers?
