A Lisfranc fracture is a common injury of the foot, usually suffered in a high impact fashion. This causes the 1st and 2nd metatarsal or long bones of the foot to separate. A Lisfranc injury is sometimes complicated to treat as this is one of the most important supportive ligaments to the structure of the foot.
This type of injury can require surgery, but with some new advances in technology we have been able too achieve amazing results with the use of a period of immobilization and external bone stimulation devices. Above are images of a female patient who suffered such an injury. As you can see the bottom of the 2nd metatarsi bone is clearly broken, however the next image shoes it healed in only about 5 weeks!
This is just one example, but if you find yourself with a foot injury we are here for you too!
