Summary

In this procedure, the provider transfers the entire patellar tendon insertion as a bone block to treat a dislocating patella, a condition in which the patella, the knee cap, slips out of its normal position and causes pain and swelling. He also performs realignment of the extensor muscles along with muscle transfer or release to improve the knee joint stability.
