In brief: Maybe
It would depend on how the bone structure looks.
Often immobilization with the use of a bone stimulator to help bone growth will do.

In brief: Talus fracture
As long as the bone is healed in a satisfactory position then u should not need surgery.
Otherwise discuss with your doctor.
