displaced patella
« on: October 12, 2011, 02:35:34 AM »
I'm new, so if I posted in the wrong place, I apologize.  I was thrown from a horse this summer, and just found out I have a displaced patella, fairly severe they said, but they didn't give me any numbers as to displacement. I have 2 options for surgery.  Option 1 is arthroscopic, then if that doesn't work, full surgery.  Option 2 is to just go ahead and have the full surgery to repair it and skip the arthroscopic. I'm told people go either way, and if I have the arthroscopic now and it works, I might still have to have the other surgery a few years down the road.  I'd like to get feedback from anyone else that's been through this.  Thanks so much.
