I absolutely HATE coding foot surgeries. Can anyone help me with this one?

Bilateral 2nd metatarsal Weil osteotomies, bi-lateral 2nd hammertoe corrections, bi-lateral partial 5th metatarsal head resections, bi-lateral partial condylectomies at both 5th toes and right sided partial condylectomy and partial 4th metatarsal head resection.

Any help is REALLY appreciated!!!!
