Arthroscopic Patellar Re-alignment OKC
Patellar realignment procedures, or a treatment of the knee cap, are used to treat instability issues that occur at the knee cap. In many cases, patients with unstable knee caps have problems with the alignment of their knee cap. Patellar realignment surgery seeks to bring the knee cap back to a normal alignment, allowing the patient to avoid feeling discomfort and pain. Through arthroscopic patellar realignment surgery, a surgeon examines the knee joint for cartilage damage through a scope. Benefits of the procedure include.
- Less post-op pain
- An avoidance of over-tightening
- Less opportunities for post-op complications
- Lower risks of scar tissues
- Easier rehabilitation
