Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: Bone usually takes 6-8 weeks to heal but this can be longer depending on your health, compliance, and the type of fracture
Answer: Maintaining a healthy diet and refraining from smoking will aid in a slightly faster recovery. Calcium, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C have all been shown to aid in healing. Providing your body with the nutrients it needs will give your ankle an optimal healing environment and increase your chances of having a smoother recovery.
Answer: There are many factors but in simplest terms you can think of your ankle joint as a ring. If one part of the ring is broken but in place, the ring is still in shape. If two or more parts are broken or out of place, the ring can no longer function properly and requires repair. That means if your ankle is broken in multiple places or the piece is out of place, it needs to be repaired through surgery to give you a stable base to walk on.
