Ask An Orthopedist: Fractured Tibia & Fibula

Calendar March 7, 2017

Question: My son fractured his right legs Tibia and Fibula. It has been two months since seeking treatment and his fracture has only healed about half way. Is there anything I can do to quicken up his healing process?

There is nothing you can do to make the bone heal faster. If the bone is well aligned, immobilized appropriately, has good blood flow, and is not infected then it should heal in time.
