Osteophyte Excision

L Posted Sun 31st of May, 2015 22:16:07 PM

I need to code the following:
DIAGNOSIS:
1.Right talonavicular joint arthritis.
2.Bony prominence off the first metatarsal cuneiform joint.
PROCEDURE:
1.Talonavicular joint arthrodesis, right.
2.Proximal tibia bone graft harvest, right.
3.Excision of bony prominence/osteophyte off the first metatarsal cuneiform joint, right.

I know the 28740 and 20900 but am unsure of how to code the osteophyte/prominence excision off the first metatarsal cuneiform joint.
Thanks!

2.Proximal tibia bone graft harvest, right - CPT code 20900.

3.Excision of bony prominence/osteophyte off the first metatarsal cuneiform joint, right - Use CPT code 28104- 59.
