I have a displaced ankle fracture. Should the doctor have performed a closed reduction on my foot before putting it into a splint? Surgery recommended

In brief: Displaced fracture

If the ankle fracture is displaced, you will likely require surgical correction of the ankle fracture.
It is difficult to give you the appropriate advice without seeing your x-rays, but displaced ankle fractures usually need surgical correction
