I have a bone spur on top of the patella? I know it will have to be removed, but I am worried about the patella tendon. How is this surgery performed?

I have a bone spur on top of the patella? I know it will have to be removed, but I am worried about the patella tendon. How is this surgery performed?

Most bone spurs rarely involve the joint and their presence alone does not warrant surgery. With physical activity, proper warm up and a cool down period that includes gentle stretching can help. ...Read more

If there's any sign of worsening or infection (redness, increased pain or fever), make sure to see your doc then. ...Read more
