Excision of a nonunion fragment

Good morning,

Our Ortho physician excised a fragment due to nonunion. Diagnosis is Right lateral process of the talus nonunion. He performed an excision of the nonunion fragment. Would 28120 suffice? No repair was done. Per CPT Assistant, 28120 is usually performed when treating an infection not an exostosis. This is neither. OR is it an UNLISTED and use 28120 for comparison?

Any feedback/comments/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
