MPFL & kneecap injury

Sometimes the knee problem is so severe that the joint itself cannot be saved. The patient will have to decide on two difficult options - fusing the knee to permanent stiffness or amputating above the joint.

MPFL & kneecap injury

Post by Doc79316 »

Hi All,

Well, After things initially went well with rehab since my left transfemoral amputation, now things have gone belly up!

I now have, in my one remaining leg, an injury to my MPFL with subluxing patella.

I see my rehab Consultant on Tuesday so I can give him the news. Hopefully he'll come up with a master plan.
