Image Description:

Fracture of the fracture is to repair it with a plate and screw fixation to hold the bones in place and assist with the healing. The main goal of surgery is to get the ankle joint to heal with a normal shape. Most ankle fracture surgery involves open reduction and internal fixation where an incision is made over the ankle to see the fractured bones. The pieces of the broken bones are placed back together called open reduction. The broken bones are then held together called internal fixation in the correct position with metal plates and or screws. The internal fixation provides stability.
