Hi...., I went through your query.... Looks like there is a tear in the ligaments... Surgery is not required in the vast majority of ankle sprains. Even in severe sprains, these ligaments will heal without surgery. The grade of the sprain will dictate treatment.... Physical therapy is a mainstay. Your husband should learn to strengthen the muscles around the ankle, particularly the peroneals.....Consult Orthopedician....
