A broken ankle is an injury that often results from twisting or rolling the ankle, falling, or a more serious accident. This fracture occurs when one or more bones that make up the ankle, including the tibia, fibula, and talus, are broken. If the ankle is out of place or unstable surgery may be required. In this procedure, the surgeon repositions the bone fragments and holds them together with screws and plates that are left in the bone while it heals. It typically takes about six weeks for broken bones to heal and longer if ligaments and tendons are involved. Physical therapy and exercises recommended by the doctor will help shorten recover time.
