Yes and no: It depends what you call "fix" and also what's "broke." if you had a fracture that involved the joint, it's common for arthritis to develop. We have no cure for arthritis, but we have lots of ways of helping you live with it more comfortably. You may also have some ligamentous and even tendon damage, which complicates things. Go back to your treating doctor and get re-evaluated.

Probably: It depends on what your original injury included and/or caused. You would need to be seen and evaluated by a podiatrist who is experienced in foot and ankle surgery and you will need x-rays and possible mri. But should be able to improve your condition and hopefully get you back to full function and activity.
