Bone Fragment excision code

Patient had a fracture, but was unaware of it. Patient has a bone fragment in hand and doctor is going to do an excision of bone fragment of hand. Any help with a CPT® code? Thanks

re: Bone Fragment excision code

Depending on how the fragment is being removed and where it is you can consider these codes:

26070 Arthrotomy, with exploration, drainage, or removal of loose or foreign body; carpometacarpal joint
26075 Arthrotomy, with exploration, drainage, or removal of loose or foreign body; metacarpophalangeal joint, each
26080 Arthrotomy, with exploration, drainage, or removal of loose or foreign body; interphalangeal joint, each
25101 Arthrotomy, wrist joint; with joint exploration, with or without biopsy, with or without removal of loose or foreign body
25100 Arthrotomy, wrist joint; with biopsy
