Arthroscopic Patellar
Re-Alignment

Patellar realignment procedures, or a treatment of the kneecap, are used to treat instability issues that occur at the kneecap. In many cases, patients with unstable kneecaps have problems with the alignment of their kneecap.  Patellar realignment surgery seeks to bring the kneecap back to a normal alignment, allowing the patient to avoid feeling discomfort and pain.
