Brief Answer: Surgical repair is not necessary Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. If there is partial tear of deltoid complex, surgical repair is not necessary. If the patient is athlete or high demand and ankle is unstable, then surgery is recommended. In your case , it doesn't looks like that you need surgery. Your injury can be treated by stirrup brace or boot immobilization with early functional rehabilitation. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care Warm Regards
