In brief: Repair it

Reduction of a fracture with stabilization are the essentials of treatment.
Whether this required open or closed treatment and for how long is a decision that should be left to an expert who examines you on a regular basis.

In brief: Splint

Depending on the fracture it should be splinted to adjacent finger ( buddy tape) or aluminum splint.
It takes 3 weeks to heal small bones.
