Referring back to our basketball injuries. An example of a high-profile basketball star that suffered this injury and underwent surgical correction of the fracture was Kevin Durant in 2014.

Again, just as we talked about with an Achilles tendon rupture there are conservative casting and surgical treatment options. This is individually based and typically our competitive athletes we will recommend primary repair of the fracture with screw fixation. This is in part because of the difficult location of the injury, which notoriously has a slow healing process. The primary repair gives the competitive athlete potential faster recovery time and return to activity time with increased strength at the fracture site.
