At Da Vinci Foot and Ankle it is our priority to get you to the road of healing.
We incorporate several different methods to protect the fracture while it heals. These range from special foot wear to casting. During non surgical treatment, multiple appointments are made within a 6 week period to ensure the fracture had not moved and that healing is taking place.
If the fracture is out of place or your ankle is unstable, your fracture may need to be treated with surgery. During ankle surgery, the bone fragments are first repositioned into their normal alignment and then held together with special screws and metal plates attached to the outer surface of the bone. In some cases, a screw or rod inside the bone may be used to keep the bone fragments together while they heal.
