If you are in need of guidance for broken ankle treatment and surgery in Arlington, you can count on Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic to help you every step of the way.
A broken ankle will usually be fully diagnosed by taking a medical history and then going through a physical examination. Then, we will be sure to order x-rays or any other necessary imaging so that we can further pinpoint the exact location and level of the injury. From there, we will be able to work on a fully customized treatment plan to get you back on your feet in as short of a timeframe as possible.
The treatment of a broken ankle could include a cast to help make sure that the ankle does not move during the full amount of healing time that is necessary. If the fracture is not that severe, we could suggest that the ankle is booted, taped, wrapped or some other form of splinting to give it some stability. However, if the fractures are very involved and severe, we will need to discuss your options for ankle surgery.
With ankle surgery, we need to work by making sure that the bones are able to fuse back to the right location. This could take the addition of screws or plates and we will only use the latest measures and technology to complete the surgery for you.
