Title: Trochleoplasty
Post by: kayleigh26 on May 11, 2012, 10:29:25 AM
After 2 failed MPFL reconstructions on my right knee my OS has now decided it is best to perform a trochleoplasty and also lower my knee cap at the same time

Would love to hear from anyone who has had a trochleoplasty to give me information on the recovery process

Thanks x

Hi kayleigh,

If you search this site for 'trochleoplasty' you will find some accounts of members that have gone through with this surgery and their experience.

Has your doctor checked your femur and tibia for excessive rotation?

i think i am having a similar thing and have posted if anyone has had the smaller op before the trochleoplasty.is the mpfl when they move hamstring from the back of your leg an dout it on the side of your knee?
