Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Broken bone is a state of continuity of bone continuation. There are several types of fractures based on the fault line, for example, transverse, spiral, oblique, or a compound fracture line.
To find out the need for surgery in every case of fracture, of course it takes anamnesis and physical examination directly by the doctor. In addition, the doctor will generally conduct a supporting examination in the form of X-rays to determine the condition of bone fractures. If there is no meaningful shift and the position between the two fracture surfaces is still aligned and in an anatomical position, this condition can be sufficiently treated with external fixation. If bone fractures require improved positioning or there are open sores that increase the risk of exposure to outside contamination, surgery is generally required.
We recommend that you consult a doctor or orthopedic specialist first. The results of the examination by the doctor will determine the need for surgery. At home, you are advised to rest well and do not involve a broken leg during many strenuous activities.
