Bunion

Diane Posted Wed 23rd of October, 2019 18:07:37 PM
My doctor has written an order for a McKay procedure of the right foot with bunionectomy. I can not find any CPT code that specifically states McKay procedure. Please advise. Thank you

Hello Diane,

Thank you for your question.

 

There is no specific CPT® code available for Mc Kay procedure. Final reportable code(s) will depend upon the actual procedure(s) performed.

 

Kindy find the below code(s) for procedures performed along with Bunionectomy.

28292- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with resection of proximal phalanx base, when performed, any method

28295- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with proximal metatarsal osteotomy, any method

28296- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with distal metatarsal osteotomy, any method

28297- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with first metatarsal and medial cuneiform joint arthrodesis, any method

28298- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with proximal phalanx osteotomy, any method

28299- Correction, hallux valgus (bunionectomy), with sesamoidectomy, when performed; with double osteotomy, any method

 

Hope that helps!

Please feel free to write if you have any further question.

Thanks
