This biomechanics study looks at how a proximal bone block with distal screw trajectory improves mechanical stability during distalization tibial tubercle osteotomy.
recently joined Dan Braun on the Brawn Body Health and Fitness podcast. We talked about patellar tracking abnormalities and patellar instability. So first of all, the patella is the kneecap – and a lot of people start having patellar pain when they’re teenagers.
In this Brawn Body Health and Fitness Podcast, Dr. Strickland joins Dan to discuss patellar tracking and patellar instability, including surgical management.
Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction has gained in popularity over the past 15 years, with most studies showing a clear advantage over techniques such as MPFL repair or medial imbrication for the treatment of patellar instability. A debate continues as to the type of fixation on the patella, tunnel versus suture anchor, as well as […]
Dr. Sabrina Strickland from Hospital for Special Surgery discusses common knee injuries and surgical interventions, including ACL tears, patellar instability, patellar tracking issues, osteoarthritis of the knee, injections for knee pain, skiing injuries & more.

One of the ways I help patients prepare for a possible surgery is by explaining what they can expect. This video shows what to expect when undergoing a tibial tublercle osteotomy for patellofemoral arthritis or patellar instability.
A new study from researchers in Portugal describe yet another procedure to treat patellar instability. Instead of a two arm ligament reconstruction, they describe a four arm reconstruction — which could have some advantages.
