Ankle Fractures

Expert Care From Our Experienced Doctors

If you’ve suffered an injury to your ankle and are experiencing pain, swelling, redness, or bruising, you may have fractured your ankle. Dr. Nick and Dr. Bernatsky are highly trained and experienced specialists for treating ankle fractures in New York, Manhattan, and Lenox Hill, NY. During your initial examination, we can help determine whether your injury is an ankle sprain or ankle fracture and recommend the best course of action to ensure that your ankle heals without complications.

Symptoms of Ankle Fractures

An ankle fracture may cause some of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Throbbing pain
  • Pain and difficulty walking on the affected foot
  • Bruising of the ankle
  • Swelling of the ankle
  • Ankle deformity

Frequently, fractured or broken ankles may be mistaken for a simple ankle sprain, which leads to improper healing, poor treatment outcomes, and ankle instability. That's why it's important that you visit our office if you injure your ankle — we can determine if you have a sprain or a fracture and recommend the proper treatment plan to get you back on your feet.

Causes of Fractures

Ankle fractures occur when you push the ankle beyond its limits and damage the ankle joint. Fractures can occur simultaneously with ankle sprains (damaged ligaments and tendons in the ankle). Some common scenarios that cause ankle fractures include:

  • Jumping from a high level
  • Overextending the joint
  • Twisting the ankle, tripping, or falling

Do You Need Surgery?

While simple fractures can sometimes be treated without surgery, if you have a serious injury, surgery may be necessary to ensure proper healing and function of the ankle joint. During your initial examination, we will thoroughly discuss your treatment options and educate you to decide upon the best course of treatment for your unique case.
