Greetings from SuperCoder.com!
Since the nail avulsion is done with phenol chemical matrixectomy, it seems that physician has performed excision of nail and nail matrix. If this is the case as per the medical record, you should report this with CPT code 11750 (Excision of nail and nail matrix, partial or complete (eg, ingrown or deformed nail), for permanent removal).
Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.
