Ankle Fracture & Surgery: An ankle fracture or commonly known as a broken ankle means that one or more of the bones that make up the ankle joint are broken. A fracture can range from a simple break in one bone or may include multiple bones of the ankle joint including, the tibia, fibula, talus or medial/lateral malleolus. There may be ankle ligaments that are damaged as well. This can be caused by over twisting or rotating your ankle, rolling your ankle by tripping or falling or simply stepping the wrong way. The more bones that are broken, the more unstable the ankle becomes.

Symptoms

Because a severe ankle sprain can feel the same as a broken or fractured ankle, every major ankle injury should be evaluated by a physician. Some symptoms include: immediate and severe pain, swelling, bruising, tender to touch, not able to support weight on the injured foot, and any deformity (out of place) appearance.

Treatment

The surgical procedure is used to stabilize the ankle joint by attaching a plate and screws to the affected bones that allow re-alignment of the bone fragments and promotes the healing and union of all fractured parts.
