The doctor did a Hammertoe correction on the left 2, 3, 4 toes with pin fixation (28285 x3). Also a 2nd metatarsal osteotomy of left foot (28308). There was a Flexor tendon transfer of the 2, 3, 4 left toes. Would this be included in the 28285 or would there be a separate code for this?

Tendon transfer is included in hammertoe repair (28285). So you should not report it separately.
