Need help with Microfracture CPT for first metatarsal head

Is this unlisted?  Cheilectomy (28289) for hallux rigidus also done on first MTP  so I'm thinking these are bundled.   Microfracture being done for Ostochondral defect.  Thanks, 


  • Can anyone comment on the above?  Need CPT for microfracture & whether it is bundled with 28289.  Thanks,
  • I consider these bundled.  They are already working around the joint.  We don't have a code for microfracture.  I have used the excision of bone cyst code if the work was consistent with that otherwise I have gone unlisted and compared to the knee but only if that is the only procedure being done around the joint.
