Probably no need for surgery, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I already reviewed the attached reports.
In my opinion, there is no need for surgery.
Immobilization of the finger is very important.
So, an orthopedist may apply a splint for four to six weeks.
The splint will protect it from further injury while it heals.
After this period another x ray is necessary to confirm if the finger has healed completely.
I see through the photo that the finger has inflammation and hematoma.
You can take anti-inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen 500 mg to reduce the swelling and pain.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
