Patella Dislocations

Patella Dislocations

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians helps athletes of all levels recover from patella dislocation. Our orthopedic surgeons carry extensive training and experience when it comes to knee injuries. Our practice offers both non-surgical and surgical treatments for knee injuries with a primary focus to help patients return to a high functioning lifestyle with optimal joint health.

The patella, or kneecap, is a protective bone that attaches with the femur bone, forming a patellofemoral joint. The patella may become dislocated when it moves out of the patellofemoral groove. Young athletes tend to suffer this type of knee injury most. It can be caused by a direct blow, twisting of the knee while changing directions, muscle contraction or congenital defect. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we treat both partial dislocations (subluxation) and complete kneecap dislocations (luxation). We adopt the latest technology and innovative orthopedic techniques to ensure our patients achieve the best possible outcome using the least invasive treatments available.

Treatment for Dislocated Kneecap

For patients who have recurrent patella dislocation and whose non-surgical therapies have failed, surgery may be required to properly restore the knee joint. There are a variety of surgical procedures to address kneecap dislocation, either first time or recurrent. You can trust that Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will take the necessary time to fully evaluate your injury and carefully explain your treatment options. Depending on your specific injury and the surrounding ligament damage, our physicians may recommend an arthroscopic procedure such as Lateral-release, Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction or Tibia Tubercle Realignment Transfer.

Choosing arthroscopy for your kneecap dislocation repair means you will benefit from less scarring, less pain and faster recovery time following your surgery. From your initial diagnosis until your final rehabilitation is complete, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for superior, patient-centered care at all times. Using advanced, minimally invasive techniques to help athletes return to maximum performance is what we are known for.

If you have suffered a patella dislocation and are experiencing symptoms of pain, swelling, numbness or restricted movement, please contact our office in Atlanta today to schedule an appointment with our sports medicine expert.

A Little Known Muscle We Know As the Psoas

There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.

Fall Sports And Sport Related Injuries

There are six sports offered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for the fall season. However, the season of fall offers the least number of sports out of the three seasons of winter, spring and fall. Some may argue this, but the most popular fall collegiate sport is arguably, football. Which college football team do you cheer for?
