Brief Answer: surgical treatment. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. Its important to know exactly where the fracture is located. Since the fractured fragments are displaced, it needs an internal fixation for proper immobilization of the fragments and healing. Surgical treatment is usually considered in such cases depending on the site and extent of fracture. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
