Can CPT code 28299 be used for a patient that does not have a bunion and has double osteotomies, such as hallux rigidus or osteoarthritis? I saw some information on the internet that said this was acceptable, but it was not from the AMA.
1. Partial excision of first metatarsal.
2. Partial excision of proximal phalanx.
3. Tendon transfer.

You can use CPT code 28289. CPT code 28299 is specific code for Bunion deformity and hence cannot be used for non bunion procedure.
