Ankle Procedure

L Posted Thu 09th of July, 2015 12:56:02 PM

How would I code the following :
DIAGNOSIS:
1.Status post left foot first metatarsal osteotomy with stress fracture and malunion.
2.Left distal fibula stable pseudoarthrosis around Infinity total ankle arthroplasty.

PROCEDURE:
1.Hardware removal, first metatarsal, left.
2.Plantar flexion osteotomy with dorsal wedge allograft and plate of first metatarsal, left.
3.Take down of pseudoarthrosis of distal fibula with bone grafting and plate fixation of distal fibula, left.

I know the 20680 but other than that am not sure.
Thanks.

Kindly bill CPT code 28322 and 27726 for the procedures performed.
Services of CPT code 20680 is bundled into the services of CPT code 27726 and 28322 and hence cannot be billed.
