What is Patellar dislocation and Osteotomy?
Patellar dislocation occurs when the kneecap is dislocated from its original position. It clinically means shifting of the knee-cap from the knee groove (trochlea). In general context, it means derangement of the knee. Osteotomy is a procedure that corrects this condition with surgical intervention. In this surgery, the knee is cut and then the bone or medial ligaments are reconstructed.
