patella Mal Tracking - surgery
« on: April 19, 2006, 11:25:03 AM »
My daughter, who is 15, is having surgery on Friday, April 21st. She is having right knee arthroscopy, lateral release, multiple drillings to lateral femoral condyle and medial patella facet and repair of medial patella femoral ligament. in other words, her knee cap dislocates and she has cartilage damage.
Does anyone know the recovery rate for this type of surgery?  She was told 6 months before she can run. She is dedicated to her physical therapy and will continue on a much more intense scale.  Any information would be very helpful!
WE are traveling in 8 weeks back to our home country - so hopefully by 8 weeks she will be getting closer!
