Ankle Fracture Repair
Most fractures of the talus do require surgery to reset the bone and help minimize later complications. Dr. Joseph Hecht realigns the broken bone with metal screws placed inside the bone. Any small fragments of bone discovered during this procedure will be removed and bone grafts will be used to help restore the shape of the joint.
Unless the underlying causes of bunions are eliminated, they will only worsen over time. In cases of severe discomfort, a surgical procedure known as a bunionectomy may be performed. The amount of the deformity will determine the surgical technique prescribed.
