Treatment options for any given fracture will depend entirely upon the individual patient’s case. There are multiple factors that impact the proper treatment of a foot or ankle fracture such as the amount of fracture displacement, a patient’s level of activity and overall health. Imaging such as MRI or CT scans may be ordered for further assessment of the fracture site and surrounding tissue damage.
It is important to discuss your options with your surgeon directly after a fracture is identified to ensure you receive the best possible treatment for your injury. In some instances, fractures may be treated with a cast and crutches. In others, surgical reduction and fixation may be the proper course for you.
