transphalangeal amputation

  1. Default transphalangeal amputation
    Medical Coding Books
    My doctor performed a transphalangeal toe amputation on a patient and I have no idea what code to use. Looked at 28825 but just not convinced that this is correct...any help would be appreaciated


  2. Default
    I think that 28825 is through the IP joint....maybe 28805 would be more appropriate?
