In brief: Most require surgery
Only non-displaced or very minimally displaced lisfranc injuries will heal successfully without surgery.
Most others need surgery. Most often, surgery means putting several screws and/or pins across the injured areas. This is a tough injury to treat in that it often results in some residual pain/dysfunction.
