This will help determine if an osteotomy in such a young patient is indicated or should be considered. After imaging and a full examination for motion strength, and laxity, an MRI would help finalize any plans for potential surgery by delineating the degree of any cartilage or meniscal and ligamentous pathology. With history of hyperextension, a definite concern is whether posterolateral corner (LCL, popliteus and popliteofibular ligament) is also involved or injured/loose. ...Read more
