CPT Code: 28289
A first MTP cheilectomy removes bone spurs on the top surface of the big toe joint bones. Bones spurs develop with arthritis (hallux rigidus) of the big toe, and spurs act as a mechanical block to motion, which causes pain. During surgery the spurs on the top of the bones are removed and the joint is cleaned out. Any free-floating debris in the joint is removed. This may allow the joint to have more range of motion and decrease pain with walking and standing.
