What to expect before and after surgery for osgood schlatters? How long is recovery & will I be on crutches after surgery?

4-8 wks: Removing the 'bump' below your knee if it continues to be painful@ age17 will require you to be on crutches for a period of time after surgery. If your ors is able to " shell out " the bone out of your patellar tendon (ossicle) or has to'chisel out' or osteotomize the prominent tubercle (or both) will determine how long. Best of luck!

Stretch, stretch and: Stretch. Osgood-schlatter is a condition involving a portion of the tibial growth plate at the insertion of the patellar tendon. It resolves when the growth plates close. It can flare up despite rest, nsaids and stretch. There is no one single answer, but I would think that if you follow a good stretching program, at least 2 - 4 weeks for resolution of the symptoms.

I have osgood schlatters. I keep breaking little pieces of the bone that sticks out off. What should I do with them. Surgery? Wht about after surger

Surgery: Surgery to remove ossicles (pieces of bone) can potentially alleviate pain in patients who have not responded to nonsurgical treatment. A full recovery and no long term limitation would be expected after surgery. If you are not having symptoms then there is no reason to remove the ossicles.

Age: This is inflammation of a muscle attachment point on the tibia in adolescents that are physically active. Reducing the amount of leg work with sports (running, lifting, etc.) can help it calm down as can use of antiinflammatory agents like ibuprofen. Rarely a kid will need a soft splint and crutches until walking can resume. As the kid gets older, growth stops as does osd.

Can osgood-schlatter disease heal?

Yes: After growth plates fuse in adolescence, this condition will heal spontaneously. Most patients if treated conservatively with rest and nsaids will be pain-free within 12 months. This is a self-limiting condition but will last longer if not treated appropriately. Some adults who had severe disease in adolescence will continue to have some knee pain (usually with kneeling) many years into adulthood.
