Toe Manipulation

L Posted Mon 20th of June, 2016 08:07:33 AM
How would I code: DIAGNOSIS: Stiff left second toe MTP joint status post metatarsal head replacement. PROCEDURE: Open excision of scar tissue with manipulation, left second toe MTP joint, and capsular release. Thanks!

Hi, There is no separate code for exact manipulation of MTP joint. As per above documentation we will bill CPT 27899 for procedure performed. We will bill diagnosis codes as M25.675 and Z96.698 for Stiff left MTP joint and s/p metatarsal head replacement, respectively.
