A Jones fracture is a common foot fracture well known to occur in professional NFL athletes. This fracture is notorious for delayed healing due to poor circulation. My non-operative approach is a Cam-Walker and bone stimulator use for up to 3 months. Surgically repaired Jones fractures are repaired under fluoroscopic guidance through a small incision. This minimally invasive approach provides stability to the fracture and gives more predictable fracture healing. It also decreases the chances of suffering re-injury in the future. My feeling is that healthy patients do better and heal faster with surgical repair. With successful repair, healing time is typically 4-6 weeks in a Cam-Walker.
