Patellar Tendon Tear

    Patellar Tendon Tear

    This is a significant injury to the ligament that attaches the kneecap to the lower leg. Tears typically occur in jumping and running athletes during an explosive maneuver. These injuries always require surgical intervention. The surgery is to reattach the tendon back to the patella bone. Rehabilitation from this surgery can take approximately 4-6 months.
