Greenstein Fractures Femur in Soccer Game
Greenstein fractured her right femur during a game at Stockton
on Saturday against Centenary. The injury occured when Jaci collided
with the opposing goalie. She was immobilized on the field and
transported to the trauma unit of the AtlanticCare Regional Medical
Center - Atlantic City Campus. She had surgery on Saturday night
and the fracture site was secured with a titanium rod and several
She was up on crutches today at the hospital (Monday) and expects
to be discharged today or tomorrow. The possibility exists she
also has a knee injury. Due to the extent of her femur injury
her knee could not be effectively evaluated or treated simultaneously.
A fractured femur is an extremely rare injury resulting from athletic
competition. It is obviously a season ending injury. Jaci will
begin rehab with Stockton Athletic Training Services as directed
by her surgeon.
Recent evaluation of Jaci's knee revealed an ACL tear to go along
with her fractured femur. There is also a good possibility she
has meniscal tear in her knee. She will be getting an MRI at the
end of the week to confirm this diagnosis. Our primary focus now
in rehab is to increase her knee flexion. She anticipates having
ACL surgery approximately 8-12 weeks after her femur surgery,
which would be in December or January.
