How long does it take for a broken finger bone to heal?

Fracture

Open-uri20131021-19955-1glkvdg
Varies depending on severity of fracture, displacement, age of patient, smoking status, etc. In general, most fractures that are minimally displaced will heal in 6-8 wks. Most displaced fractures can take longer and may not heal at all. Surgery may be needed to approximate the ends of the bone if widely separated.

Dr. Richard Tholen answered:

How long does finger deformity associated with broken bone last?

Could be permanent

Kidney_pain
Unless properly splinted, casted, or taped by an expert, there could be permanent deformity. Even if "perfectly" aligned, there can be callous formation causing swelling on the bony fracture heal line. If there is angulation or visible deformity at present, see a plastic surgical or orthopedic specialist in hand surgery and get the correct X-ray diagnosis of problem or not! Good luck!

A dislocation may be reducible and very stable, not reducible and need surgery to put back or once put back in place be unstable. these are all assessments made by the treating porvider and used to asses needs for follow up care.
