Fractures/Dislocations

Ankle Fractures and Dislocations

You do not have to be an athlete to use your ankle everyday. Your ankle joint holds critical responsibility for basic foot and leg movements. However, it is a bone and soft tissue joint that is susceptible to injury. Whether you have severely sprained your ankle during a traumatic fall or you have a minor stress fracture from overuse, we can help you at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our sports medicine specialists are equipped to treat simple and complex ankle injuries, including ankle fractures and dislocations.

It is not uncommon for a dislocation of the ankle to also include fractures or surrounding tissue damage, such as in the case of a severe Grade III ankle sprain. Fractures can be the result of a fall or sports injury. The elderly and athletes are more prone to ankle fractures due to weak bones and overuse injuries.

During an injury of high force, the ankle joint can become dislocated. This happens when the connective tissue and supporting muscles that holds the ankle bones in place are torn. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer a wide variety of treatment options to repair both ankle dislocations and ankle fractures, whether they occur together or separately.

Dislocation and Fracture Repair

At Ortho Sport & Spine, we value the importance of restoring your ankle in its entirety, which may include specialized surgical treatments for the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone that make up your joint. You can trust that we will conduct a thorough examination of your symptoms and evaluate your ankle damage in detail before recommending the most appropriate course of treatment. Our practice offers both surgical and non-surgical therapies depending on the severity of your injury.

In the case of a dislocated ankle with associated fractures, your treatment may involve anatomical reduction of any displaced fractures, surgical internal or external fixation to stabilize the ankle or fracture and the subsequent use a protective boot or cast for several weeks. We are experienced orthopedic surgeons who will determine the most suitable treatment for your ankle injury so that you can return to activities and sports as quickly as possible.
