Doctor performs Bunionectomy with 1st metatarsal osteotomy, base wedge osteotomy (28299) and EHL Z-tendon lengthening. What would be the proper coding for the EHL Z-tendon lengthening, I am getting mixed responses from 28208/28234/28240. Also, Is the tendon lengthening inclusive with the 28299.

Appropriate code for EHL Z-tendon lengthening would be 28240. You may append modifier-59 with CPT code 28240.
