Knee cap repair

Common Questions and Answers about Knee cap repair

knee

Avatar f tn her orthopedic surgeon said that with the repair he is not optimistic about the knee cap staying in place due to bone shifting and as well as tissue degenerating..is there anyone who has been through this with their children or anyone know if there is a disorder that is associated with this type of injury?
Avatar f tn Hi, working is fine as long as you are not using the limb extensively. A knee cap will help you too. Decompression of cyst along with repair of meniscal tear is the option. Repair is important as only decompression will lead to recurrence of cyst. Keep on taking pain killers after meals till you see the doctor.
Avatar f tn Drilled holes in my knee cap and tied everything back together. Last night I woke up and the muscles were going into spasms. It felt like something shifted in my knee and then it just stopped. My question is could the spasm have caused it to retear or hopefully it was just shifting everything into place. I felt no pain after and it actually feels better. I called Dr and talked to the nurse and she said spasms were common and shouldn't do any damage.
Avatar m tn x-rays show obvious knee cap deteriation ( less than 50 % of the other knee in size ) and an old MRI report said slight sublexation- I have two questions untill I get a different referral from my PCP ( although the doc stated the obvious about the knee cap he did not even bother to allow me to show him what happens when I bend my knee and it wobbles and crunchs and did not even offer a brace solution to my falls ) 1.
Avatar m tn s just in behind my knee cap on the right side. It cracks every time when I straighten my knee especially when I'm trying to contract it with force. My knee has also been swollen and stiff ever since surgery, and is noticeably more so than my right normal knee. The swelling really inflames when I walk around to class during the day and makes me limp if it's especially bad. When I bike though, it seems that the swelling possibly decreases, and all the stiffness goes away.
Avatar m tn He also will be drilling holes in my knee cap to allow bone marrow to help repair the tendon. I am just curious to whether or not this sounds like a proper next step to try and provide me with some pain relief. I have also thought about getting a second opinion from a civilian orthopedic to get their opinion.
Avatar m tn We took him in and they took an x-ray and the ligament that extended was over his knee cap was stretched, so then his knee cap would move out of place. So we had to put him on glucosamen (sp?) and if that didn't work then he would of had to have surgery.
1308443 tn?1302693321 t remember the last time the swelling was sown enough I could see my knee cap. I am doing exercise I found online and wearing knee braces during karate. Nothing seems to help. The doctors keep telling me sorry just wait I out take 4 advil when they hurt. That doesn't help at all. Is there something else I should do or suggest to the doctors?
Avatar m tn My MRI result showed degenerative Medial Meniscus and stretched ACL - and I am wondering what the way forward options are - my specialist has advised arthroscopy for the medial meniscus but my ligament doesn't feel too stretched!
Avatar m tn have a knot on knee cap when to doc. 1974 said it was like munchhousen something and not the one for women doc.
Avatar m tn You need to ask the dentist this question. A gold cap is very thin, so the dentist may not be able to reuse it. It also depends on where he needs to drill to repair the tooth. Personally, I couldn't wait to get rid of my god cap. I have a lovely Cerec cap that matches the colour or the rest of my teeth.
Avatar n tn It includes the articulation between the tibia and femur (leg and thigh) and the patella (knee cap) and femur. The most common knee problems in running relate to what is called the "patellofemoral complex". This consists of the quadriceps, knee cap and patellar tendon. What is now called patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) has also been called runner's knee, anterior knee pain, or chondromalacia of the patella.
Avatar m tn i started to get a jolting sharp pain on my left knee i think coming from the knee cap or around the sides of the knee cap. it went away the next day but came back again few days later...... it seems to come when i just walk on the knee not every step but a certain pressure of my steps. Someone please help dancing is my Job and before i dish out money to a doctor i would like to try to understand what im dealing with. PLEASE HELP!
Avatar m tn I feel I have more damage on the tibia too because I have lots of pain below my knee cap and in my lower joint line behind my knee. My concern is that this surgery will fail for me because of the size of defect, the fact that this has been going on for 2 years, and the amount of other damage I have in other areas of my knee.
Avatar m tn Last wk I was playing basketball and when I came down from jumping I had a real sharp pain in my knee and could not continue. Around the top of my knee cap is tender and hurts and when I put pressure on my knee getting out the car or anything I get sharp tack like pains under my knee cap and sometimes on the side of my knee and it aches a little, I have really slight swelling but I am able to walk. What do you think it is and what should I do?
Avatar f tn When I was a freshman in highschool I had seen a Doctor about my knee problem, and was tolded that my knee caps were making new knee jionts by themselves. They had done surgery on my right knee. I was wondering what the medical name was for this type of knee problem.
Avatar n tn It also showed some arthritis under the knee cap. The surgery included a scraping and shaping under the knee cap. After surgery there was still sensitivity on the medial side of knee. Surgeon said it was because of the way the knee was held open during surgery and it would fade. It did for a time and now it is back. If I move my left leg from left to right and have some resistance against the foot there will be a sharp pain in the medial meniscus.
Avatar n tn Prepatellar bursitis, patellar subluxation,knee cap dislocation all can lead to pain directly over the knee cap.Rest,antiinflammatory medications, application of ice to the knee all are very important for reducing the symptoms. If the symptoms persist or are severe it is best to see an orthopaedician.I hope it helps. Best luck and kind regards!
Avatar n tn I injured my right knee (injured knee as it sharply moved laterally to the right) in 05. I initially had pain below my knee cap and to the right of it as well as in the IT band area. One yr later, mild, occasional tingling in bottom of right foot started but only when I “stressed” my knee (run, swim, bike etc). From the beginning when I injured it, pain in my knee was very mild unless I exercised then it was much worse to the point of not being able to exercise at all.
Avatar n tn A preexisting condition called as chondromalacia predisposes individuals to wear and tear of the cartilage under the knee cap. The pattern of cartilage damage seen with chondromalacia is distinct from the degeneration seen in arthritis, and the damage from chondromalacia is thought to be capable of repair, unlike that seen with arthritis. Treatment is by resting the knee and adhering to a proper physical therapy program.
Avatar m tn Is the pain under your knee cap or tendon? From what you are saying it sounds like your saying under your knee cap. You could have patellofemoral syndrome; very common for cyclists (read your bio). Try this website. http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/sma/sma_patellod_sma.
Avatar m tn The anatomy of knee or knee joint configuration would have changed after the knee fusion surgery to do any sort of surgery after that. Yes I think an orthopedic surgeon experienced in knee replacement after knee fusion could possibly with difficulty could have done it. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar f tn But no use, then had advised me to wear knee cap for few days. I was feeling better with knee cap. I removed it after 25 days, it was little better for 2 days, then again the pain is back. After few days, went to orthopedic, he said no problems and advised me to do some exercises. Then also no use. I have still have the pain in my knee and following parts....couldn't talk for more than 10 mins. Could you please advise me how to solve this and become normal.
Avatar n tn t remember which) are too weak (due to the fact that my knee are still growing) to keep the knee cap from sliding over to far and causing inflammation and swelling in the knee. So, it would be great if someone knows what is wrong and what it is called. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Whenever I touch it or bruxh it against something I get a bad pain in the side of my knee. Seems odd that an injury on the front of the knee cap and cause such pain on the side. Looking for any info, please help. Thank you.
Avatar n tn child with a small pebbles size bump under the skin on the knee cap area. It is firm, freely moveable, regular borders, and very tender to touch. When I say freely moveable I can actually move it all around her knee cap. I moved it down so far that it disappeared for a few seconds before it resurfaced. I thought it may be a piece of chipped bone but I believe it is to smooth for that. Her knee cap doesn't seem tender only the nodule.
670987 tn?1284498786 Hey everyone, I am pregnant with my third child (about 17 weeks) with this pregnancy it has been one thing after another. First of all I have headaches everyday, now for about the last 5 hours or so, I've had a constant throbbing pain in my knee cap on my left leg. There is a bruised colored knot on the left side but that isn't where the pain is. The pain is around the bottom of the knee cap itself. I've tried a heating pad, ice, tylenol, etc. Not helping.
