Should drainage of finger abscess be billed using 10060-10061 or 26010-26011?

Based on documentation details, you have to pick codes from the following:
26010 Drainage of finger abscess; simple
26011 Drainage of finger abscess; complicated (eg, felon)
26034 Incision, bone cortex, hand or finger (eg, osteomyelitis or bone abscess)
