If you’ve suffered an injury to your ankle and experience pain, swelling, redness, or bruising, you may have broken a bone. Dr. Nick is a highly trained and experienced specialist for broken ankle surgery in New York, NY. During your initial examination, Dr. Nick can help ascertain whether your injury is an ankle sprain or an ankle fracture. Then he will be able to recommend the best course of action to ensure that your ankle heals without unwanted complications.
How can you tell if your injury is a sprain or a break? A sprain happens when the ligaments in your ankle stretch or tear. Your ankle will become painful and swollen. You may or may not be able to put weight on your ankle.
A broken ankle is generally more painful. You will likely not be able to put weight on your ankle and will experience bruising and swelling. The only way to determine for sure if there is a break or sprain is to see our doctor.
Depending on your unique situation, our NYC podiatrist will diagnose your ankle fracture and review your treatment options with you. While simple fractures can be treated without surgery, if you injured yourself seriously, you may need surgery to correct your broken ankle. During your initial examination and consultation with surgical specialist Dr. Nick, he will thoroughly discuss and educate you on all your treatment options, and together you will decide upon the best course of treatment for your needs.
