In brief: Possibly

Your fracture pattern is pretty common for ankle fracture variants.
I would not make much of the deltoid and atfl tears as these occur with bad "sprains". The fact that your fracture was nondisplaced made it a stable injury. You are borderline definition of nonunion. May try bone stimulator. Probably just need plate and stable fixation. Doubt you need bone graft. Once fixed should do fine.

In brief: Some newer options

I would first consider the amniotic membrane product inserted without any incisions - cutting edge at this time.
