It depends!: The treatment for s dislocating kneecap can be simple therapy and a home exercise prgram, up to a complicated surgery to realign your bones around your knee. It really depends on why your kneecap or patella is dislocating and how serious the injury to the surrounding ligaments is. The first step is to get an evaluation from a surgeon with experience in these matters!
