Ankle fracture

Ankle fractures are the result of a fall or a high energy injury, such as a motor vehicle accident or contact sports injury. Fractures often cause severe pain, swelling, and inability to bear weight.

 

Treatment, surgical or non-surgical, will depend on your specific type of fracture. Please speak with your surgeon about your specific injury and recommended treatment.
