In brief: Many ways
It depends on the type of thumb fracture that you have.
Some require immobilization only, others are best served with fixation with pins or plates and screws. If you have a thumb fracture, please see an orthopedic surgeon for an exam and x-rays to make sure your fracture is treated appropriately.

In brief: Cast or surgery
If the bone has not shifted, a cast will suffice.
Otherwise surgery is needed to put the bones back and pins or screws to hold them together.
