Specific components of the surgical procedure taught will be trochlear wedge recession, tibial tuberosity transposition to correct pull of the quadriceps muscles, medial release, and lateral imbrication. This course will include a comprehensive discussion of the physical examination and diagnosis, preoperative planning, operative goals, postoperative management/ rehabilitation, avoiding complications, combined lateral suture for concomitant MPL and ACL, and how best to treat postoperative complications.
