Ankle Fracture Treatments

Possible treatments for ankle fractures include:

  • Treatments can be non-surgical if the broken bone is not out of place. An X-ray may be used to see if the ankle is stable. Your physician may immobilize or cast the ankle.
  • Surgical treatment may be needed if the ankle bone is out of place or unstable. Surgery may be needed to reposition the bone fragments and hold them together with screws, metal plates or rods.
