What exactly do you mean? Does your kneecap go to the left (outside)? Do you mean you have bowed legs or knock knees, where your knees either bow out or "cave" in? Just struggling to get a grasp of what you are trying to describe.

The kneecap pulls off track to the outside.It doesn't stay in the groove.I rehab to no avail.

I think I saw in another post of yours that you had microfracture? I think if you give us a little history--how old are you? Did you injure your knee or when did your trouble begin? Which knee is it? What procedures have you had? What imaging have you had? What diagnosis have you gotten? etc. When you say your kneecap is pulling off track--is it dislocating? subluxing? just tracking poorly? What are you doing when this happens?

More information will help people offer suggestions for you. We're all happy to help!
