Brief Answer:
Can heal in POP cast.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached report. There is fracture of fourth metatarsal with mild displacement. Surgery is not necessary in this case. It can heal well in plaster or POP cast also with proper closed reduction. You can discuss the treatment with your orthopedician and he can guide you regarding such facility in your area also.
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.
For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Praveen-Tayal
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
