Tendon Tear

A tear in the patellar tendon is a serious injury that requires prompt attention to fix mobility and prevent complications such as scarring or shortening of the tendon.

During this procedure, our surgeons will drill small holes in the kneecap and reattach the tendon to the kneecap using traditional sutures. If you are eligible, suture anchors may be used instead. These anchors allow our team to reattach the tendon without drilling holes in the kneecap.
