Patellectomy / Patella Repair

Patellectomy / Patella RepairThe patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the human body. It is located within the extensor apparatus of the knee. Anatomical features include the proximal articular body, with an extraarticular anterior surface and a posterior articular surface, and the extraarticular distal pole. In a full or partial patellectomy, all or part of the kneecap is removed. This surgery usually lasts approximately two hours.
