when does a doctor not put a cast on a broken fibula?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Mark Galland
31 years experience Orthopedic Surgery
Depends: Sometime a cast is never used for a fibula fracture. A high tide boot can typically be enough of an intervention. Discuss this with your physician if you have questions about your specific injury.
