Patella Dislocation


The patella (knee cap) is also the source of many problems. The knee cap moves in a groove of the femur during knee flexion and extension. In some patients the knee cap slips out of the groove and comes to lie on the outer aspect of the knee. Many factors like, muscle imbalance, altered anatomical development and ligament laxity play a role in the causation of this problem. It requires surgical intervention if it occurs more than once. The surgical treatment includes strengthening the torn / loose ligaments and releasing the tight structures. In a select few, bony procedures to correct development of bony problems may be necessary. The relevant procedures will be decided for each patient after thorough clinical and radiological evaluation.
