AN ORTHOPAEDIC EMERGENCY ENDS WELL

College student Melissa Lucci was hit by a car and suffered a displaced right femoral neck fracture, an orthopaedic emergency for a young person. If not treated quickly, the fracture can disrupt the blood supply leading to the death of bone tissue. The typical outcome is early arthritis, pain, a limp and the need for a joint replacement at a very young age.

Melissa was initially taken to Montefiore New Rochelle, but due to the severity of her injury she was transferred to our Wakefield Campus. Dr. Louis F. Amorosa operated on her in the middle of the night. He performed an anterior approach to the hip to fix the fracture and restore the blood supply.

Now, six months later, Melissa is doing well. The fracture has gone on to heal and there is no sign of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. She walks normally and is back at school studying speech therapy.
