Hi,

Here is an article that might help, it has diagrams included which also help explain the surgery.

Hi,

I had the MPFL reconstruction 17 days ago.  There is not a lot of information about the procedure out there as I found when I was researching the surgery.  I just posted an update on the topic that shade sent to you.  If you have anny questions feel free to ask.
