Patella Surgery

                                                  Patella Surgery (Knee-cap surgery)

One or combination of more than one of the following strategies may be required to correct patellar luxation:

  • Reconstruction of soft tissues surrounding the knee cap to loosen the side toward which the patella is riding and tighten the opposite side.
  • Deepening of the femoral groove so that the knee cap can seat deeply in its normal position.

  • Transposing the tibial crest, the bony prominence onto which the tendon of the patella attaches below the knee. This will help realign the quadriceps, the patella, and its tendon.

At Mercer Street Veterinary Hospitall in Kirkland and on eastside of Seattle, we have excellent track record in achieving success in these surgical procedures.

Feel free to contact us to schedule a complimentary consult with one of our Veterinarians!
