Birth Defect of Malalignment and Knee Cap Dislocation Corrected at the same Time


    This 50 year old lady, fairly active sports person earlier, lived all her life with deformity of the leg (knock knees) and dislocated patella. Over the years, she started developing pain due to wear and tear of the deformed joint, and eventually found it difficult to move around. Looking at complexity of the problem, we thought that for her, knee replacement may be the best option. But, considering her age (50 only), we decided to reconstruct (repair). It needed lot of considerations as multiple defects had to be fixed at the same operation. We could perform good correction.
