What is the best code to use for Left #2 plantar plate repair ??

I need some more details. If this is performed in conjunction with hammertoe,there is no specific code for repair of flexor(plantar) plate, I suggest adding modifier "-22" to CPT 28285 indicating that this procedure was greater than the usual code, and deserves more compensation.
If not,please do submit additional info to get a clear scenario.

the codes billed were 28750 -(arthrodesis, left 1st mpj), 28308 - L # 2 metatarsal osteotomy, 28285 - L #2 arthrodesis and then also writted was add L #2 plantar plate repair ?
