Torn Patella Tendon

The large thigh muscle known as Quadriceps is attached to the knee cap by an important tendon known as the Quadricep tendon. This can be injured and torn. If this happens, knee surgery is often required. Surgery is normally performed by placing sutures into the tendon and passing them through the knee-cap bone.

Surgeons at Victorian Bone and Joint Specialists will assess your knee and often order an MRI scan to gain information about the injury.

If surgery is required, a rehabilitation program to help the knee move normally will be organised with your physiotherapist in consultation with our surgeons.
