TTO + MPFL Surgery
« on: January 19, 2018, 08:12:43 PM »
Hi all - I'm new here, so I had no clue where to post this. I'm a runner with recurring lateral patellar subluxation and dislocation in my left knee. I had Xrays and two MRIs, and I've had two consults at two different practices in which the orthos had two different opinions. Both believe I need a tibial tubercle osteotomy, but one also believes I need MPFL repair in addition to the TTO because of how stretched the ligament is now.

Has anyone undergone either or both surgeries? I'm a runner, so this is my worst nightmare. I know my recovery time is about 6 months, but how long was it until you were FWB unlocked?

Thanks so much!
