Will I need surgery on my ankle sprain or fracture?
Most ankle fractures and some sprains are treated by immobilizing the join in a cast or splint to encourage healing. Surgery may be needed to repair fractures with severe misalignment to properly unite and realign broken bones. You may be required to keep weight off of the injury – your doctor will monitor your healing and instruct you. Physical therapy both during and after healing will help you regain strength and mobility – avoiding future injury.
