Yankees baseball player underwent surgery late last week after suffering a career-threatening ankle injury while jumping on a trampoline.

Yankees baseball player Joba Chamberlain underwent surgery late last week after suffering a career-threatening ankle injury while jumping on a trampoline with his 5-year-old son at a children’s play facility in Tampa. Chamberlain was released from St. Joseph’s Hospital on Sunday and will spend the next six weeks in a cast as he recovers from surgery.

“Although trampolines can be fun for both kids and adults, they pose a high risk for injuries, especially when two or more people jump at one time” says John Purvis, MD, orthopaedic surgeon and spokesperson for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).
