Jones Fracture

Jones fracture non-surgical treatment in Encinitas

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.
