Specializes in Orthopedic Reconstructive Surgery

Patellectomy is rare: It is very uncommon to need a patellectomy. If you did need and get a patellectomy ( the removal of your knee cap), your knee would be weaker than prior to the patellectomy. you would be able to do everything, but need to be aware of the weakness.
