Accidents Resulting in Patella Fractures

- Falls, especially from high places
- Biking accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
Treatment of a Knee Injury
In order to determine the extent of a patella fracture x-rays must be done. The severity of the injury will dictate the course of treatment. Sometimes surgery is necessary to repair the broken patella. Other times, such as in a hairline fracture, immobilization may be enough to repair the fracture. Immobilization is done with a brace or cast and will also help to keep physical discomfort to a minimum.
If surgery is required it s a major surgery and will require the use of screws, pins and wires to keep the patella in place during recuperation.
After a severe knee injury you may face lifelong complications as a result such as arthritis, stiffness and pain.
All of these injuries, issues and complications may entitle you to medical benefits and financial compensation for your injuries.
