Patella Tendon Tear
This is a tear of a large tendon in the front of your knee. We call it the "patellar tendon." It connects the bottom of the kneecap to the top of the shinbone. It helps you straighten your leg. You can have a tear that doesn't go all the way through the tendon, or you can tear the tendon completely. A complete tear is a disabling injury.
Our Simi Valley office and Porter Ranch office and Orthopedic Walk-In Clinic will be closed on Friday, October 11 due to the fires. Services at our other locations may be affected as well due to travel conditions; however, we will try to let everyone know if their appointment or surgery is affected. Please stay safe and contact us at (818) 901-6600 if you would like to reschedule your appointment for any reason. We apologize for any inconvenience.x
