Candidate for Patella Femoral replacement?
« on: May 23, 2013, 02:05:20 PM »
Can one be a candidate for a kneecap replacement if you have had a previous menisectomy? 

Has anyone had LONG TERM success with this procedure -over 5+ years?

You might want to try to contact KW.  She has had PJFR on both knees and last I knew had really good outcomes with both.  I don't think a menisectomy would be an issue.  As I remember if you had ACL repair then that would be an issue.  Good luck-A
