Hello,I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long. An incomplete proximal tibial metaphyseal fracture usually need internal fixation. Though may orthopedist may treat it with just plaster slab. Once the fracture unites; which takes almost 8-10 weeks; extensive physical therapy, deep electrotherapy, knee brace would be required for your rest of the medical conditions (tendinosis, cartilage loss and fissuring of lateral facets which are osteoarthritis changes; wear and tear of the joint) Please feel free for your follow up questions. I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.Thanks for using Just Answer.
