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?
