I am coding a surgery where the doctor states R#1 MPJ arthrodesis, (28750) - and then adds, metatarsal cuneiform stabilization procedure with no CPT code, and I cannot seem to find a CPT code for that procedure ? Is it part of something else?

If there is no separate pathology for that "metatarsal cuneiform stabilization" do not report it. It will be considered as incidental.
