Boston Children's Hospital can provide expert diagnosis, treatment and care for fractured tibias/fibulas in children.
The tibia and fibula are two bones in the lower leg. The tibia forms the shin and the fibula forms the calf. Although the tibia and fibula can break (fracture) independently from each other, it is more common for the two bones to break together (this is called a combined tibia/fibula fracture) because they are so close together, especially around the knee and ankle joints. When one bone is injured, it usually affects the other bone too.
The symptoms of a fractured tibia/fibula are serious and need immediate medical attention. With the proper treatment, fractured tibias/fibulas in children can heal completely.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
