Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) Reconstruction

Your patella, also known as the kneecap, is held in place by a number of ligaments and muscles. When the patella slips out of place, it’s known as a dislocated kneecap and is most commonly experienced by athletes and sportspeople. A Medial Patellofemoral Ligament (MPFL) Reconstruction works to re-stabilize the patella and is most often performed if you are experiencing recurring episodes of kneecap dislocation especially if you are anatomically predisposed to experiencing this problem.
