My friend sustained an injury few weeks ago. She had fracture of the knee cap and was told that it is necessary to remove the knee cap itself. I want to know whether this will affect her mobility and will be able to perform all movements at the knee joint.

If the injury is really serious, it might be necessary to replace the knee cap. Knee Cap surgery is not really very complex and has a very high success rate. However without actually reading the case consultation cannot be provided. Please visit my website


and fill the online consultation form by providing maximum information and I will revert back to you.
