Excision of bone fragment 5th metatarsal base
Patient was to undergo ORIF of 5th metatarsal fracture but the bone was very soft and started to break apart with gentle handling. The decision was made to excise the fragment as it would likely not have held a screw or healed with internal fixation.
I was looking at CPT 28122 but this appears to be for osteomyelitis or bossing. Was wondering if this was the correct code or if anyone had any other suggestions.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
