After knee replacement surgery I contracted an infection,long story short after multiple surgeries my patella was removed.I am. 68 year old male,I cannot believe there is not a leg brace made for people without a patella
Hello @carmine69. Although this is a story from 2009, I thought you may enjoy the account from a former Mayo Clinic patient on the procedure she underwent at Mayo Clinic to replace a patella, https://sharing.mayoclinic.org/2009/06/23/a-life-restored/.
@carmine69, how is your leg functioning without your patella? Have you discussed any further treatment with your surgeon?
