Depends: Your need for surgery will depend on the stability and/or damage under your knee cap. If this is your first patella dislocation vs the latest ofmor, that could change things as well. The effusion or fluid in the knee is just a symptom of the dislocation. Its really the patella that needs to be evaluated. ...Read more

Likely: The tear and in particular extruded portion of the meniscus associated with a large effusion do suggest that this meniscal injury will likely require surgical intervention.

Variable: The recovery time can vary from weeks to years. Chondromalacia implies long-term, often irreversible damage to the cartilage that covers the bone. However, symptoms can improve or even disappear. If your patella is not tracking properly, then I recommend a physical therapy program, patellar stabilizing brace and rest from activities that worsen symptoms. Also, update/improve athletic footwear. ...Read more
