In human anatomy, the fibula is a bone of the leg. It is situated lateral to the tibia (larger shin bone) and between the patella (knee) and ankle. The fibula is not as long, thick, or strong as the tibia, and does not provide weight support. However, the fibula assists with muscle structure, and can be utilized when large bone grafts are necessary.
