In brief: Depends

Some wrist fractures if they are non or minimaly displaced can be treated in a cast or splint.
If there is a deformity, displacement or the joint line is badly disrupted, often surgery will be recommended.

In brief: It depends

It depends on the fracture location, displacement, and your health.
Treatment ranges from immobilization in a cast or splint to surgery with pins/screws/plates.
