fibul/o is a combining form that refers to “fibula (outer lower leg bone)”.

The fibula is a lengthy bone in the lower leg that is located on the outer side of the tibia. The fibula is a much shorter and slimmer bone than the tibia. In contrast to the tibia, the fibula does not bear weight. Its primary function is to connect with the tibia and provide support for the ankle joint.
