Treatment will depend on which of your bones is fractured and whether your ligaments are torn. Our goal is to restore your mobility.

Overview

If you have a simple fracture, we may immobilize it with a cast to keep your foot from bearing weight for about six weeks. We will then put you in a removable cast or boot to support your weight. If you have a severe break, our orthopedic surgeons may consider surgery to repair torn ligaments or realign your bones using pins, plates or screws. Our physical therapist can help you regain mobility during or after treatment.
