Polydactyly / CPT Code Help Needed
Patient has polydactyly (Q69.1) and an accessory thumb was amputated several years ago. Our provider is going to do a "right hand excision of accessory tissue at the radial side of right thumb." When it was amputated previously, tissue and nerves were left, and will now be removed because of nerve pain and lack of coordination. Suggested codes have been 26587, 25931, and 11200. The provider feels 25931 best describes what he will be doing. We would appreciate input on if this code is appropriate, or if another code would better describe what is being done.
