Lisfranc Fracture/Dislocation Surgery
If the ligaments are completely torn and the bones are dislocated out of position, surgery is needed to realign the bones and ligaments. Without surgery, arthritis is very likely to occur within a few years. Wires, pins, or screws may be used.
After surgery, patients will have to wear a cast or boot and limit weight bearing on the foot for upwards of eight to twelve weeks. In addition, patients may still have to use a rigid arch support in their shoes.
